#BreakTheBias and Celebrating #BoldMoves: Women's History Month 2022

Updated: Apr 13



Puremaven advocates for diversity and inclusion by enabling gender balance everywhere it matters in society - in workplaces; in schools, colleges, and universities; in communities. We believe that many preconceived notions of women's roles and limitations - biases - are a learned mindset, and therefore, there can be unlearned. They make it even more difficult for women to achieve and move ahead, and the world is truly missing out on the opportunities a gender-equal world presents.


We all know that it takes a village for systemic change to happen. At the same time, we recognize that change needs to start with ourselves, not just with awareness but also, and more importantly, with action. In celebration of International Women's Day and Month 2022, we invite you, wherever you may be, to shine the spotlight on someone you know who admirably either: (1) is leading an action-oriented effort to #breakthebias towards a more inclusive and gender-equal world, or (2) personifies what it means to make #boldmoves that push women's place in our society forward. Do so by naming your nominated individual in the comments below and describing in less than twenty (20) words what they have authentically done along the above themes, and why such action has or will make a huge difference. We'll be accepting nominations until April 07, 2022, Thursday.


After April 07, the top three (3) most inspiring actions will be selected from the submissions, and the resulting three winning pairs (nominator and nominee) will be given the opportunity to celebrate Women's Month through empowering self-care. These chosen ones will get the chance to choose any one of the five following expert self-care experiences hosted by top, curated wellness and beauty professionals - Mavens - who are part of Puremaven's vetted roster of experts.
