International Women's Day (IWD)

About this event

International Women’s Day (IWD) is marked on March 8th every year. In different regions, the focus of celebrations ranges from general respect and appreciation toward women to a celebration of women’s economic, political, and social achievements.

As part of Google’s Women Techmakers (WTM) program, events are hosted throughout March and April, even though International Women’s Day (IWD) occurs on March 8th every year. The goal of IWD celebration for Google is to galvanize women with a background or interest in computer science around International Women’s Day and raise visibility of women in tech.  Along with just the timing of IWD falling around midterms and spring break travel, we wanted to choose an easier time to celebrate and provide visibility for the incredible contributions of STEM women around the world.


This year’s 2024 theme is “Impact the Future.” We all have the power and the responsibility to impact the future of technology and society, with AI as a major part of shaping our world. What will that future look like? And how will we build it? We can use our skills, creativity and passion to create positive change and solve the problems that matter to us and our communities. We can also inspire the next generation of women in tech who will continue to impact the future with their own ideas and innovations.
