Join us to celebrate International Women’s Day NYC 2022 on April 5 - virtually and in person!
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.
IWD is Women Techmakers annual event campaign when our community hosts events in March and April. We create connections, educate and inspire, and recognize that we still have a ways to go to close the gender gap.
This year our theme celebrates all kinds of progress - big or small - and the strength we demonstrate when we don’t let fear hold us back from following our dreams.
