About this event

Join us to celebrate International Women's Day 2022 :)

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.

The theme for this year: #ProgressNotPerfection

This year our theme 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.
