About this event

Join us to celebrate International Women’s Day 2021!

#CourageToCreate @WomenTechmakers

International Women’s Day (IWD) occurs on March 8th every year. It marks a moment to celebrate and provide visibility for the incredible contributions of women around the world and is a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

This year, we’re inviting our community to connect remotely and share the incredible strength and power shown in the face of adversity. We recognize that there were tremendous challenges over the past year, from dealing with the pandemic to broader issues of racial justice and human rights. But we remain hopeful about the future and the belief that together our community can create positive change throughout the world.

Let’s ALL (Men, Women, Non-Binary) join together and embrace our #CourageToCreate that enables us to overcome challenges. EMPOWER EACH OTHER!

Empower Women - Empower All

Join us to learn how to succeed as an engineer, communicate confidently in the virtual world and be a compassionate leader. Meet diverse leaders from top companies and hear their personal experiences and career journeys.

What will you have the #CouragetoCreate in 2021?
