New mural on Ponce highlights the importance of access to information for women!
Mayor Andre Dickens joined representatives from The Carter Center and community partners to mark International Women’s Day—highlighting the importance of supporting women and girls and reaffirming the City’s commitment to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment.
To commemorate International Women’s Day yesterday (March 8), the Mayor unveiled a brand new mural, painted by ATL muralist Sarah Neuburger. It represents the impact that meaningful information has on women, their families and their communities. You can find the mural at 458 Ponce de Leon Ave NE.
The mural was commissioned by the City of Atlanta and the Carter Center, as part of the Inform Women, Transform Lives campaign. This groundbreaking global endeavor connects women to City services and programs, and beyond. Today, 24 cities around the world have joined the campaign.
“Women have made so much progress in this fight for equal rights, but the truth is much work still remains,” said Mayor Dickens to those in attendance. “Initiatives like Inform Women, Transform Lives are so vital to create an environment that helps women succeed economically, raise our awareness of women’s rights to information and ensures women’s advancement in leadership.”
The City also announced the launch of the second edition of the Women Export University Program in 2022. This specific program equips entrepreneurs with the necessary tools and resources to become globally competitive and increase the participation of women-owned businesses in international trade.
