About this event

Come celebrate International Women's Day and #PressForProgress.

During these engaging, interactive lightning talks, get inspired by female leaders who are spearheading local innovation in tech, culture, social media, and politics. They’ll discuss how they’ve pioneered gender equality in their industries, the challenges they faced, and provide key tips and strategies on taking action. After the talk, connect with people of all backgrounds in your community, and pledge to #PressForProgress in 2018.

As part of General Assembly’s ongoing efforts to foster an inclusive tech community and break down barriers to tech education, we are celebrating International Women’s Day 2018 by showcasing women who have taken groundbreaking action in their fields. Today, more than 40% of GA’s full-time students are female. We strive to continue to empower women in local communities to reach high, achieve their goals, and make an impact on the world.
