2020 International Women’s Day Events to Take Place Across Metro Detroit

International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated every year on March 8, honoring women’s achievements and supporting the movement for gender equality. Popular around the world, the day is now dedicated to recognizing women’s leadership at all levels and advancing gender equality as a civil rights and socioeconomic imperative.

The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is “Each for Equal,” inspired by the concept that creating a gender-equal world means collective change.

International Women’s Day also continues to advocate for gender equality in business, cultivating discussions on its importance in thriving economies and communities.

On March 6, the Chamber will host its second annual International Women’s Day Lunch at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham, where a panel of executives will discuss how to engage in inclusive practices to foster diversity and equality. Register and learn more.

Here’s a lineup of other International Women’s Day events taking place around metro Detroit this March, where you can celebrate and join in on the conversations.
