The International Women’s Day Committee invites members of the La Crosse community and beyond to join in a celebration of International Women’s Day. The celebration will consist of panelists from around the world discussing on how women are celebrated in their country as well as their experiences in both their home country and the U.S.. After the panelists speak, time will be set aside for questions from the audience.
International Women’s Day is celebrated in countries around the world each year on March 8th. The theme for the 2024 International Women's Day is #InspireInclusion. Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women's equality. Collectively we can all #InspireInclusion. Celebrate women's achievement. Raise awareness about discrimination. Take action to drive gender parity. IWD belongs to everyone, everywhere. Inclusion means all IWD action is valid.
Community members are encouraged to strike the IWD #InspireInclusion pose and email the selfie to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll be posting selfies on the International Women's Day social media.
Sponsoring organizations include the AAUW La Crosse, the League of Women Voters of La Crosse Area, the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, the Women’s Fund of Greater La Crosse, Viterbo University, YWCA, and the International Women’s Group.
