About this event

International Women's Day 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.

For the past 9 years, Women Techmakers has celebrated IWD throughout the months of March and April. In 2020, in spite of a global pandemic and quick pivot to virtual, WTM Ambassadors reached over 80,000 worldwide through our IWD campaign #TogetherWeRise.

In 2021, we hope to inspire even more women and allies across the globe in partnership with you! We are also excited to extend the WTM IWD campaign to our GDG communities, in an effort to work towards gender parity and equity in tech together.
