About this event

Join us to celebrate International Women’s Day 2022!

International Women’s Day (IWD) occurs on March 8th every year. While women should be celebrated everyday, March 8th 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 where our community hosts events in March and April. We create connections, educate and inspire, and recognize that we are still in the process of closing the gender gap.

Theme: #ProgressNotPerfection

This year our theme celebrates all kinds of progress - big or small - and the strength we demonstrate when we challenge our environment socially and professionally.
