International Women’s Day (IWD) is Women Techmakers annual event campaign that marks a moment to create connections, educate, inspire, celebrate and provide visibility for the incredible contributions of women around the world.
This year our theme #ProgressNotPerfection celebrates all kinds of progress - big or small - and the strength we demonstrate when we don’t let fear hold us back from following our dreams.
Our paths aren’t always linear, so often we hold ourselves to impossibly high standards and feel disappointed when we can’t reach them - or worse, we don’t even try. When we let the idea of being perfect go, we allow ourselves the space and freedom to try new things, to make mistakes and to learn.
when we celebrate #ProgressNotPerfection, we are celebrating all we’ve accomplished and our inner strength and resilience that allowed us to get here.
Instead of striving for perfection, we can strive for growth and discovery.
