Whether it’s Rihanna, Beyonce, Amy Winehouse, Aretha Franklin, Adele, or Lizzo this group listening event will definitely be a hit at the office.

You will also need to provide these gift cards at least two weeks prior to the reveal event giving your teammates enough time to make an informed purchase.

Adding a virtual trivia challenge or a party is a great bonding experience that can also be integrated into this Women’s History Month. However, you will need to be mindful of adding events that contribute as a positive, thoughtful, and informative segment instead of just entertainment.

Host a Party with Music Trivia

The music and entertainment industry has produced and continues to produce talented female artists and singers. If you can host a safe in-person party, then this event is a great idea. To host this party and music trivia event you will need to create a list of the top women artists music. You can take inspiration from your Spotify or Apple music office playlist.

Divide your co-workers into teams via random pairings and be sure to allocate fun prizes for the winning team.

Painting event

Virtual arts and crafts activities are a great way to inspire your teammates to embrace their inner creative and artist spirits. On this Women’s History Month you can invite professional women artists to lead a painting class on par with women’s empowerment themes.

You can either paint famous pieces by women artists or allow the participants to paint a new art piece. For smooth execution of this event, you will need to deliver paints, brushes, and canvases before the day of the event.

Women’s Right Quiz Event

If you want to create a competitive and educational event that sparks real emotions surrounding discrimination against women, then a Women’s Rights Quiz Event is an idea worth looking into.

This event can incorporate state laws, constitutional rights, global women’s issues, and women’s suffrage movement-related topics. You can shortlist the topic areas of the quiz to allow the participants to prepare for this event. For further motivation add vacation days or gift cards as winning prizes.

Guess the Current Women’s Rights Activist Trivia

This activist trivia is similar to the Women’s Rights quiz event and also serves as an informative activity. Instead of a long list of topics, this trivia will only cover the top current global and national women’s rights activists and the causes they stand up for.

This can be done virtually via Zoom group call or in-person at the office. You will need to make a list of the top current Women’s Rights Activists before the day of the trivia.
