Today, March 8, is International Women’s Day 2017. This year’s theme, “Be Bold for Change,” Is an idea that Arrow Electronics not only applauds, but actively champions through its support for women in technology and global workforce diversity.    

Arrow sponsors the annual Colorado Technology Association (CTA) Women in Technology conference, which convenes women IT leaders to be a model to influence girls in STEM. In addition, Arrow’s financial contributions support the CTA’s Foundation program, STEMworks, a source for high-quality, independently vetted STEM education programs in Colorado. 

Arrow also is a proud supporter of The Women’s Foundation of Colorado whose mission is to build resources and lead change so that every woman and girl in Colorado achieves her full potential. Here Arrow’s work focuses on helping women achieve economic success in STEM fields, and on promoting gender equity

“Arrow recognizes how challenging it can be for businesses to develop inclusive hiring and professional-development practices. As a global company, we’re committed to diversity in the workforce and we salute the organizers and participants involved in this year’s International Women’s Day events,” said Donna Tikkanen-Davis, vice president of human resources at Arrow.
