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 2023 theme is “Dare To Be.” Events are being focused around empowering our communities to have the courage and confidence to dream big and take risks. Whether it’s bold, resilient, innovative or more, IWD 2023 is an invitation for everyone to think about all the ways you will “Dare To Be!”
