The University of Waterloo is proud to celebrate the contributions and achievements of women in our global community. As we celebrate their impact on the University and the world, we continue to work together to ensure that everyone belongs at UWaterloo.

International Women's Day (IWD) on March 8 is a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also brings attention to various issues affecting millions of women worldwide, including gender-based discrimination, violence and inequality. It’s a moment to recognize how far we’ve come while acknowledging the work we still need to do to achieve full inclusivity and empowerment.
