According to the World Economic Forum, at the rate we are at now, the gender gap will not close until the year 2186. This is too long to wait.

Techstars and General Assembly are teaming up to #BeBoldForChange on International Women’s Day, happening March 8th. This is an important catalyst for stirring up the conversation, community, and driving greater change for women.

We are asking for all people to take bold action in 2017 to accelerate gender parity. The #BeBoldForChange movement is a pledge to help women advance and unleash the limitless potential offered to economies the world over.

Join us on March 8th as we gather female leaders from around the world to share their experiences of gender inequality and how they overcame it. Prepare to be inspired during these interactive lightning talks as these female leaders not only tell their stories, but also offer tips and strategies on taking action.

Here is a list of the events happening in a city near you:

Thank you for your support! We look forward to celebrating International Women’s Day with you.
