Event Details

Join Graduate Women in Business for the first annual Booth International Women's Day Conference. GWB believes this year's International Women's Day (IWD) theme, #EachforEqual, is an important focus for women and men alike.

Equality is not a women's issue, it's a business issue. Gender equality is essential for economies and communities to thrive.

An equal world is an enabled world. We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women's achievements. Collectively, each one of us can help create a gender-equal world.
