No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project

Mumtaz,

I've been lucky to spend my career doing work that I love – promoting the advancement of women and girls. And so I was thrilled earlier this year to join the Clinton Foundation to lead our newest initiative, No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project.

Launched by Secretary Clinton in November, No Ceilings is focused on measuring the progress women and girls have made since the 1995 UN World Conference on Women in Beijing, and assessing the gaps that still remain for women and girls to reach full participation.

I know that we need women – and men – like you to help us share good stories of progress, build momentum around the work that remains, and accelerate the conversation on full participation. So, I hope that you'll help us commemorate this Women's History Month by highlighting extraordinary women who have made a difference in your life and our world; sharing statistics and facts on the current status for women and girls; and learning about some of the great work being done to ensure more women and girls can participate fully in all aspects of political, social, and economic life.

Here are some specific ways to get involved:
 
1.Follow the facts. Each day this month, the Clinton Foundation's Twitter feed will share one important fact about the progress women and girls have made or the challenges they currently face. You can follow through @ClintonFdn or #NoCeilings.
2.Pin your inspiration. The Clinton Foundation is now on Pinterest and No Ceilings has launched a new Pinterest board to celebrate women who have shattered ceilings around the world, throughout time. Take a look at some of the incredible women who have made their mark on history – some you may know, others may be new to you – and help share their stories.
3.Learn about progress. The Clinton Foundation works with partners around the world to accelerate opportunity for women and girls. Read about some of these great programs.
4.Change your profile picture. To celebrate International Women's Day on March 8, we invite you to change your profile picture on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to a woman who made a positive impact on your life – and help share her story with the world.
5.Share. We know that when women and girls are able to reach their full potential, the results of that positively impact our world. Here is an infographic you can send to your friends and family in honor of this Women's History Month to help remind people about why full participation matters.

I hope you'll join me and the No Ceilings team in celebrating and sharing these stories – and look forward to working together to help shatter more ceilings around the world. 

Sincerely,

Terri McCullough
