More About BE BOLD

Be Bold for Change Inc. is a non-profit (501c3), was originally co-founded by Kate Isler and Nickie Smith, to meet the increasing demand for women to recognize and celebrate International Women’s Day. The Be Bold Seattle annual flagship celebratory event has now grown well beyond a single day and joined the broader efforts to move gender parity forward across the globe.


True to its roots the organization aims to build an intersectional community of women and their allies, who share the same philosophy to inspire, empower and support each other to take bold pragmatic action to accelerate gender parity across core pillars: health, safety, education, and wages.
