Apple will highlight the contributions of women to society in many ways during Women’s History Month, including suggesting relevant outstanding books, podcasts and apps. It also plans virtual Today at Apple sessions led by female creators.
Plus, there’ll be an International Women’s Day Apple Watch Activity Challenge for March 8, and there’ll be other ways of observing this day.
Throughout March, select Apple Stores will host “She Creates” sessions led by women from across industries and mediums. This includes co-chair of the Women’s March Linda Sarsour, musicians Meghan Trainor and Victoria Monét, designer Carla Fernández, and many more.
To coincide with International Women’s Day, Apple has partnered with the nonprofit “Girls Who Code.” The partnership aims to expand learning opportunities for young women.
To do this, Apple is providing its Swift-focused “Everyone Can Code” curriculum to club leaders across the U.S. to help expand the number of coding clubs. This will ultimately benefit up to 90,000 young women.
