Addteq invites you to celebrate International Women’s Day over lunch with us from 12:30 – 2pm in Princeton on Friday, March 8th to celebrate International Women’s Day. Addteq is located at 100 Village Boulevard, Suite 320, Princeton, NJ. The event is free, registration required:
The 2019 theme for International Women’s Day is #BalanceforBetter “Balance is not a women’s issue, it’s a business issue…From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate its presence. Balance drives a better working world.”
Addteq will providing lunch and a meet and greet with Oanh Ngo Usadi, author of her award winning 2018 memoir, Of Monkey Bridges and Banh Mi Sandwiches. “A quietly affecting and laugh-out-loud funny immigrant memoir tells the story of a girl and her family as they flee Việt Nam to America in the 1980s. This classic American immigrant story is also a coming-of-age tale as the author forges new friendships and strengthens bonds with her family in her journey to become an American.”

The NJ Chapter of Room to Read aims to promote local businesses and facilitate fundraising projects that create awareness for literacy and gender equality in education worldwide, connecting our local and global communities for good. Founded in 2000 on the belief that World Change Starts with Educated Children®, Room to Read’s innovative model focuses on deep, systemic transformation within schools in low-income communities during two time periods that are most critical in a child’s schooling: early primary school for literacy acquisition and secondary school for girls’ education. We work in collaboration with local communities, partner organizations, and governments to develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children and ensure girls can complete secondary school with the skills necessary to negotiate key life decisions. Room to Read has benefited 16.6 million children across more than 30,000 communities in 16 countries.
