Join ICSB this International Women’s day for our Women’s In Education event. This virtual event hosts interactive sessions, inspiring stories, panel discussions, and webinars for a more equitable tomorrow. Our global speakers from 19 countries will connect on March 8 to discuss the Global Impact of Women worldwide.

Women have consistently met challenges with creative, quick thinking, often prioritizing sustainable, community-driven solutions. These are precisely the values and experiences businesses need to build and grow. Woman-run enterprises are one of the top growing economies in an ecosystem looking for new growth opportunities. Therefore, all women must have access to solutions that increase their participation.

The future starts now; the future starts with you.
