March, 8th 2023

By: UCCS Media


Women's History Month is a time of celebration and recognition of the achievements and contributions of women throughout history. It is a time to acknowledge the progress that has been made toward equal opportunities and to reflect on the work that still needs to be done. 

The roots of Women's Month can be traced back to the early 20th century when women began to organize and mobilize for their rights. In 1908, thousands of women marched through New York City to demand better working conditions, higher pay, and the right to vote. The following year, the first International Women's Day was celebrated on March 8th, and since then, this day has been recognized as a global celebration of women's achievements.

What Workforce Champions
Need to Know  for March:


National Developmental Disabilities

Awareness Month

Each March, we highlight the many ways in which people with and without disabilities come together to form strong, diverse communities.

The NADD awareness campaign seeks to raise awareness about the inclusion of people with developmental 

disabilities in all facets of community life, as well as awareness of the barriers that people with disabilities still sometimes face in connecting to the communities in which they live. This year's artwork is from artist Jamila Rahimi


March is also Women's History Month!

What is often overlooked in history are the stories of Disabled women. Women like Rosa May Billinghurst, Frida Kahlo, Sojourner Truth, Sarah Bernhardt and Dorothea Lange to name just a few.
