On International Women's Day, Mayor Martin J. Walsh announced the winners of the EXTRAordinary Women Campaign, led by the Mayor's Office of Women's Advancement. The campaign highlights women that do extraordinary work within the Boston community. Hundreds of women were nominated for this campaign and 31 were selected to be recognized by the Office of Women's Advancement, every day during Women's History Month.

"The hard work, commitment, and leadership of women make an enormous impact on the City of Boston every day," said Mayor Walsh. "This Women's History Month, it is important that we honor the women who have come before us and recognize those who are currently active leaders in our neighborhoods. I encourage anyone who knows the women who are being highlighted to take a moment to show them gratitude for what they do for our community."

Lourdes German, Founder and Director of the Civic Innovation Project, was one of the honorees selected, in recognition of her deep commitment and passion for communities and civic engagement.

Mayor Walsh is committed to the advancement of women, having launched a five-year partnership with the American Association of University Women (AAUW) to offer free salary negotiation workshops available to every woman in the city of Boston, called "AAUW Work Smart in Boston", the first of its kind in the country.
