Celebrating International Women’s Day with the ‘CHOOSE TO CHALLENGE’ Global Forum Event

What do an Olympian, a lawyer-turned-nonprofit founder, and C-Suite business executives have in common? They all chose to challenge the status quo — to break down barriers — and through force of determination, stamina and ingenuity, forge their own path.

How did they do it? What challenges did they face? What can we learn from their journeys?

We found out about all of that during the “CHOOSE TO CHALLENGE” Global Forum, which was hosted on March 16 at 4 p.m. EST as a FREE event in celebration of International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month.

Our very own 1,000 Dreams Fund founder and CEO Christie Garton was among the esteemed panelists, joining Colgate’s Chairman, President, and CEO Noel Wallace along with other women executives at Colgate.

They offered advice and insights — and took attendee questions — on how to take risks and overcome challenges and hurdles along the way on the path to achieving dreams.

It was such a great, encouraging discussion!

Colgate is also a 2021 Title Sponsor of our MentorHER Initiative.
