About this event

International Women’s Day (IWD) is on March 8th every year. Take a Friday moment to celebrate and appreciate the incredible contributions of women around the world. This event is a call to action for accelerating equality.

For IWD 2021 you are invited to be inspired and to connect with others in the Northeast region and to share (remotely) stories about the incredible strength and power women have shown in the face of adversity. The past year has been filled with tremendous challenges. Think about coping with the pandemic and stepping up to work on the issues of racial justice and human rights. Let's shine the light of hope for a bright future and the belief that together our community can create positive change throughout the world.

Let’s ALL (Men, Women, Non-Binary, Everyone) join together and support the #CourageToCreate that enables us to overcome challenges.

Empower Women - Empower All

Join us to talk about how to succeed as an engineer, how to communicate confidently in a virtual world and most of all, how to be a compassionate leader. Meet diverse contributors from top companies like Netflix and Google who can share their personal experiences and career journeys.

EMPOWER EACH OTHER! What will you have the #CouragetoCreate in 2021?
