Celebrating Women's History Month
March is Women’s History Month and here at The Langham, Boston, we are excited to say that there are so many ways to honor women this time of year. We believe that women can do anything they put their minds to and we are proud of all the women who have played a role in this historic building.
From the working women of the early 20th century from our property’s time as the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, to all the women who have staffed our hotel over the years we are grateful for their service and for paving the way forward for all the women here at The Langham, Boston today.
We are in the capable hands of the team at Shawmut Design and Construction as our property undergoes its transformation and we are happy to note that women are playing a major role in this part of our story as well. “At Shawmut, we’re focused on being at the forefront of everything we do in order to best serve our clients. In an industry that’s only 10% women, we realize the importance of changing this imbalance to an equal share of voice. I’m proud and excited to see women in various roles on The Langham, Boston renovation—from assistant superintendent to assistant project manager to project managers—moving the needle on this historic, high-profile project.” – Randy Shelly, Executive Vice President, Hospitality, Shawmut Design and Construction.

To celebrate the women who are playing a significant role in taking this historic building into the next decade, we have put together a few ways we can all honor not only Women’s History Month, but also to make way for all the women working toward their own dreams in 2020.
1) Shop at For Now
Just a few minutes away from The Langham, Boston is For Now, which is a retail space where consumers can discover and experience digitally native brands in real life. Many of For Now’s brands are run by local female entrepreneurs and we have to say they have some really cool things on the shelves. Head over to the Seaport to check them out for yourself.

2) Try Sam Adams' Newest Beer
The popular Boston-based brand, Sam Adams, has released a new Belgian White Ale, called Agent 355. Named in honor of the female Revolutionary War spy whose bravery assisted in the American fight for independence, with the code name Agent 355. Portions of the proceeds from the Agent 355 ale will be donated to Accion, a nonprofit organization working to offer female entrepreneurs loans and other resources to help them grow.

3) Dine at Stillwater
Supporting the women in our community can be as simple as trying a restaurant helmed by a female chef. Chopped Champion, Chef Sarah Wade opened Stillwater last August in Downtown Boston. Stillwater is only a nine-minute walk from The Langham, Boston and the menu is filled with gourmet comfort food. Open for lunch, dinner and brunch, Stillwater serves up tasty favorites like crispy smoked chicken wings, rosemary lamb chops and more!
