About this event

International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated internationally on the 8th of March each year and provides a day for celebration and reflection on social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. This day also marks a call to action for gender parity.

The theme this year is #ProgressNotPerfection

This year students, staff and community partners are invited to attend our annual International Women’s Day event : The panel discussion Women in tech workplace before , now and near future

The panel will be close discussion with inspiring women who have covered their way to become digital leaders, sharing their advice, both personal and professional, on achieving career success. Further we like to know their reviews for future state of their workplace

We'll be closing with a Q&A session, giving you the opportunity to ask our panelists questions on leadership, empowerment, breaking stereotypes and much more. This is also a great place to network with other like-minded creatives and innovators and celebrate women leading in technology.

This year, we are thrilled to hear from exciting guests.

The online Event targets gender bias and inequality while seeking out and celebrating women's achievements!
