We’re all about International Women’s Day here at West Elm. Not only do women make up 73% of our team, but Williams–Sonoma, Inc., the parent company of West Elm, was named California’s #1 company for female leadership, with women making up 57% of WSI’s board + executive roles. So for the third year in a row, we’re proud to be celebrating International Women’s Day at every West Elm store across the country with fun events for each local community! From pop-ups supporting local women-owned businesses to learning a new skill like yoga or calligraphy, check out this sampling of store events happening across the country — but this is just the tip of the iceberg, so see what your local West Elm store has planned and RSVP here!
