Impact

IAEE women are making an impact not only in business but in our communities.  We believe showing gratitude is being thankful for our industry and IAEE women are committed to returning that kindness to others who are less fortunate.

Cervical Health Awareness Month

January is the designated month by Congress for Cervical Health Awareness. The American Cancer Society is actively fighting cervical cancer on many fronts: helping women get tested for cervical cancer, helping them understand their diagnosis and helping them get the treatments they need. Encourage annual cervical exams, and stay educated! Find out more here.

The Nation Goes Red in February

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for women. On the first Friday of every February, which is designated as American Heart Month, the nation comes together, igniting a wave of red from coast to coast. From businesses to communities all over, this annual charge unites millions of people for a common goal: the eradication of heart disease and stroke. Go Red for Women!
