All you have to do to get started is log in with your HawkID!

This month, to honor women inside and outside of the workplace, LinkedIn Learning has launched a March Challenge, kicking off March 9th. Through short videos throughout the month, you’ll explore gender bias, its impact, and how to support & empower women at work.

Challenge yourself to participate every day –each one takes ~5 minutes or less. To keep yourself on track, try keeping a journal or print the calendar and initial each day when you’ve completed it.

Happy learning!
