#BreakTheBias with us on March 8th as we discuss the impact of gender bias across diverse industries, and how we can overcome it together.

About this event

Let’s celebrate the achievement of women as we confront gender bias in every space in which we exist.

This year’s International Women’s Day theme is #BreakTheBias. We are invited to imagine a world where gender equity exists, and take actionable steps toward that reality. The IWD organization identifies the following ”missions” to get us all moving toward that future:

Build workplaces where women thrive

Elevate visibility of women creatives

Forge women’s empowerment worldwide

Forge women’s equity in tech

Celebrate the women forging change

Empower women’s choices in health

Creating equity in the workplace for all genders is a necessary step toward a safer, more collaborative space for us all. SNIWWOC is pleased to invite three guest speakers (TBA) to share about their experiences across their respective industries. Our guests will share about their journey to success, the gender bias they face along the way, and some of the other intersecting issues they’ve encountered. Stay tuned for speaker announcements, coming soon!

We can’t wait to share with you, and hear from you!
