Accenture Celebrates International Women's Day with CICS Students

CICS Northtown students discuss International Women's Day over lunch

To mark International Women's Day, mentors from Accenture joined students from CICS Northtown Academy for a dialogue on the power of women in the workplace and the world. The group watched a webcast from Cherie Blair, head of the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women which is dedicated to developing programs that "build confidence, capability and capital in women." Students and mentors came together over lunch to discuss the webcast and how the message applied to their own lives. Thank you to Jill Stein from Accenture, Melissa Arkin, CICS Northtown Academy, Stacy Beardsley, Civitas Education Partners and Meghan Schmidt for attending the event.
