About this event

It's March so it must be International Women's Month!!

As such, Lamba Labs is co-hosting a celebratory day with GDG Coast Lebanon and Women Techmakers Lebanon. The event is also in partnership with WOMENA. Join us for a chance to win 2 tickets to Step conference* Dubai!

This year saw a lot of efforts for women empowerment and changing the norms, with 2018 being "at the heels of unprecedented global movement for women's rights, equality and justice". Hence, IWD only saw it fit to tag this year's theme as #PressforProgress

Working under this theme, Lamba Labs, GDG Coast Lebanon, and Google Women Techmakers Lebanon Branch is inviting women speakers who have done so much to help build a new Lebanon.
