International Women’s Day (IWD) is a day to celebrate and appreciate women around the world for their economic, cultural, and political achievements. Now more than ever, there’s a strong call to #PressforProgress motivating and uniting friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.
WiWSF is partnering with Reddit to bring you a panel of inspiring women from all over the globe who work in tech and media in the Bay Area. We hope their stories and perspectives on inclusion will motivate collective action and shared responsibility for driving gender equity forward.
