About this event

For International Women's Day 2023, our community will be hosting a Women Techmakers' annual event to connect, educate and inspire, and as well bridging the gender gap. It is a moment to celebrate and provide visibility for the incredible contributions of women around the world and in our region, and is a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

Join the Women Techmakers of Hudson Valley in a virtual event that explores this years' theme 'Dare to Be', empowering our community to have courage, dream big, and be bold. Hear from a panel of technologists as they discuss challenges as opportunity and using their strengths to make courageous career choices. Participate in a facilitated session where you can share your own stories of personal transformation and success. Learn from other women in the Hudson Valley in a brief series of lightning talks, designed to inspire you to enhance your skillset.

#WTMDareToBe

When we Dare to Be: we explore what it would mean to be audaciously bold, to walk through the world with courage and confidence. We are willing to try something new, to step outside of our comfort zone and to be unapologetically ourselves. We don’t let societal or cultural roles or norms dictate who we are or how big we can dream.

The beauty of “Dare To Be” is that it is part of a larger sentence: you can dare to be bold, to be innovative, to be resilient - it can apply to so many aspects of our lives.
