March 1 – 12, 2021

We Mean Business

On March 8, the world celebrates International Women’s Day. This year from March 1 – 12, our region will run the 3rd Annual International Womxn’s Week: IWW 2021.
Our community has a shared goal – to inspire, equip and empower womxn professionally. That’s why we’re bringing
nine jam-packed days of virtual events to our region and beyond.
It will take all of us working together to expedite change. This means having people from all walks of life, across all sectors, engaged. That includes you!

Why "Womxn"?

The word “womxn” is an alternative term to the English language word “women.” We use this term to explicitly include those who identify as women, transgender women, women of colour and non-binary individuals. This choice supports our concerted effort to create a culture of belonging.

Information is power
