VI Celebrates International Women's Day
In 1908, a group of women marched in New York City to demand better pay, shorter working hours, and the right to vote. Three years after that, the first annual International Women's Day was celebrated, and 112 years later, this annual holiday is recognized in more than 27 countries and is celebrated by people around the globe on March 8th.
International Women's Day provides an opportunity to reflect on the progress made toward gender equality and equity, and recognize the challenges that still exist. By celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women everywhere, we can educate ourselves and start important conversations that lead to positive change in our world.
At VI, we're proud to celebrate the women who bring so much value to our team every single day – but especially on International Women's Day. So, to celebrate the 112th anniversary, we asked the most phenomenal women we know to share their stories, advice, words of encouragement, and insights on what it means to be a woman in the modern world:
3 Tips for Making the Most of Your Marketing Internship from a VI Intern
Regardless of your experience coming into an internship, everyone has a common goal in mind - to grow. And growth is best defined by two factors - personal and professional. You can see personal growth in the relationships you make with both clients and coworkers. Professionally, you notice growth in the skills you develop. But internships vary from industry to industry, company to company, and even department to department. In order to make the most of your time with a company or organization, you have to approach it with the right state of mind.

Communicating Remotely: Revisiting The Importance of Quality Communication
Last year, most of us would never have guessed that working remotely would last beyond a few weeks… two months, tops, right? Zoom might have been thought of as a temporary bandage the day you received your first remote meeting invite. Fast-forward just one year later and your opinions have likely changed. WFH has stood the test of time, and with it comes with many challenges, including important communication hiccups that, unfortunately, are often overlooked. Remote communication will likely play a permanent role in your "new normal" workday. Because of this, it’s extremely important to make sure you are mindful and knowledgable when it comes to inter-virtual-office communication.
