About this event


Join us to celebrate International Women’s Day NYC 2021!

International Women’s Day (IWD) occurs on March 8th every year. It marks a moment to celebrate and provide visibility for the incredible contributions of women around the world and is a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

This year, we’re inviting our community to connect remotely and share the incredible strength and power shown in the face of adversity. We recognize that there were tremendous challenges over the past year, from dealing with the pandemic to broader issues of racial justice and human rights. But we remain hopeful about the future and the belief that together our community can create positive change throughout the world.

Let’s ALL (Men, Women, Non-Binary) join together and embrace our #CourageToCreate that enables us to overcome challenges. EMPOWER EACH OTHER!

Empower Women - Empower All

Join us for an “Ethical ML and AI: How To Make Inclusive and Innovative Products” panel discussion with women trailblazers. Ever wonder what makes you Remarkable??? Our #IamRemarkable workshop with Women Techmakers facilitators Divya Krishnamurthi and Linda Kovacs is for you!
