International Womxn’s Week

March 2 – 9, 2020

We Mean Business

On March 8, the world celebrates International Women’s Day. From March 2 – 9, our region will run the 2nd Annual International Womxn’s Week: IWW 2020.

Our community has a shared goal: to inspire, equip and empower womxn professionally. That's why we're coming together to host eight jam-packed days of events. We want all folks, across all sectors, engaged and working collaboratively to expedite change.

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
