About this event

International Women's Day (IWD) is marked on March 8th every year. In different regions, the focus of celebrations ranges from general respect and appreciation for women to a celebration of women's economic, political, and social achievements.

Is it only for women?!
We strive to have a broad representation of attendees in tech including developers, designers, technology entrepreneurs, and many others across all phases of their careers, backgrounds, genders, and walks of life. We welcome all to apply!
