International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day 2023


This year’s International Women’s Day 2023 campaign theme: #EmbraceEquity


The aim of the International Women’s Day (IWD) 2023 #EmbraceEquity campaign theme is to get the world talking about why equal opportunities aren’t enough. People start from different places, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action (IWD, 2023). Find out more on the IWD website. techNL embraces equity, diversity, and inclusion today and every day and strives to operate with a lens focused on equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility throughout all that we do.

Please note: if you are a woman in tech who would like to share your story, or know of someone that has a great story to share,  please reach out to and let us know. We would love to hear from you and be able to share more incredible, inspiring stories! A special thank you to our friends at Equal Voice NL for sharing their resources.
