About the event
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.
International Women's Day, which has been celebrated each year on March 8th for well over a century, 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.
The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality. To both honor and advance this tradition, International Women in Business (IWIB) in partnership with AmCham Sweden, cordially invite you to an inspirational fireside chat over a lunch sponsored by Eversheds Sutherland Sweden.
