About this event

Women Techmakers' International Women's Day (IWD) campaign brings together thousands of developers to celebrate, connect and learn. Globally it's a moment to recognize the incredible contributions of women around the world, and is also a call to action for accelerating gender equity.

IWD is an opportunity for women and allies to come together to share stories, learn from each other, and take action toward educating and inspiring our tech community. IWD is also a way in which we support our mission of building a world where all women thrive in tech.

This year 2023 our IWD theme is #DareToBe 

What does it mean to Dare to Be ?

  • We bravely set out to accomplish our goals
  • We don’t let others dictate what we can or cannot be
  • We are unapologetically ourselves
  • We have the courage to stand up for what we believe
  • We recognize everyone has something unique to contribute

…and ANYTHING you want it to be!

📌This event is exclusively for women in tech, and we encourage you to invite your female colleagues, friends, and peers to join us.
