International Women's Day 2019 Theme and Events

"Innovation and technology can help empower women and girls. Yet a growing digital divides means that women are underrepresented in fields like science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Let’s reverse this trend and innovate for change!

This year's theme for International Women’s Day, #InnovateForChange, is a call to action, asking everyone to harness the power of technology to create a more equal world. By removing the barriers facing women in STEM, we can unleash new ideas and solutions that will transform our society and strengthen our economy."(click here to continue reading...)
