All Queen's members are welcome to join us in celebration of International Women's Day on March 8th hosted by Women in Science Queen's (WiSQ) and Queen's Women's Network (QWN)! To register, please email wisq@queensu.ca and a Zoom link will be provided! 

This virtual event will feature opening remarks from the Smith's School of Business Dean Wanda Costen. We will then invite attendees to participate in the creation of a WordCloud to commemorate the day.

Similar to previous years, this event will include a chance to Network with your Queen's Community!  We will have the following 5 Breakout rooms available to foster discussion:

1. Resilience in the Pandemic
2. Finding Social Connections
3. Share your creative outlet
4. Getting ahead in your career
5. Maintaining a Work/Life Balance

International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality. 

This year's theme is #BreakTheBias: 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 #BreakTheBias.
