International Women's Day - Women in Engineering Event

Wed 8 Mar 2023 5:30pm8:00pm

About this Event:

We can all challenge gender stereotypes, call out discrimination, draw attention to bias, and seek out inclusion. Collective activism is what drives change. Join us as we bring together leaders and changemakers who are redefining innovation.

Forging gender equity isn't limited to women solely fighting the good fight. Allies are crucial for the social, economic, cultural, and political advancement of women.
