Melinda ​Gates ​once ​said, ​'A ​woman ​with ​a ​voice ​is, ​by ​definition, ​a ​strong ​woman'. ​By ​stepping ​into ​your ​voice, ​you ​have ​the ​power ​to ​catalyze ​change ​at ​work, ​home, ​and ​in ​the ​community. ​Now ​is ​the ​time ​to ​embrace ​that ​power, ​recognize ​your ​influence, ​and ​take ​control ​of ​your ​future. ​What ​can ​you ​achieve ​by ​owning ​your ​voice, ​your ​power, ​and ​your ​time? ​ 
 ​ 
At ​IWL, ​we ​know ​that ​men ​are ​an ​integral ​partner ​in ​achieving ​an ​equitable ​future. ​Together, ​our ​voices ​are ​magnified, ​our ​power ​multiplied, ​and ​our ​time ​momentous. ​Learn ​the ​skills ​necessary ​to ​have ​courageous ​conversations, ​reclaim ​your ​voice, ​ ​and ​be ​a ​tenacious ​ally ​for ​all ​women. ​
