13th Annual International Women’s Day Forum: Powering Potential Through Changing Times

Tuesday, March 7 (9 am – 2 pm EST)

Recent years and today’s complex times have ushered in an abundance of change for women in the workplace. Through it all, we have seen stories of resilience, resolve, reinvention, and, at times, major setbacks. These experiences create ripple effects that could be felt by women, girls, families, and organizations for years to come.

With change comes the opportunity for business leaders and their partners to engage in problem-solving and creative thinking to help define a path forward and power the full potential of women and girls. As new territories are charted, the business sector could experience the benefits of women’s evolved participation in today’s workforce – and of the seeds planted for tomorrow’s dynamic workforce as girls become more deeply engaged in the talent pipeline.

Join us for powerful conversations, such as:

  • Navigating Change: Women in the 2023 (and Beyond) Workplace
  • Embarking on Entrepreneurship: Partnerships that Support Women and Their Business Interests
  • It’s About Time: Expanding Access to Financial Freedom
  • New Era: STEM Programs Forging the Path Ahead
  • Steps Forward and Steps Back: Investing in Women’s Wellbeing
  • Lunch Keynote with the U.S. Department of State
    • Hosted in partnership with the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s 13th Annual International Women’s Day Forum will highlight how the private sector continues to innovate to advance opportunities for economic security, workplace inclusion, and a sense of wellbeing for women and girls.

Location: U.S. Chamber of Commerce – 1615 H St NW, Washington, D.C. 20062

Cost to Attend:

  • $100 through March 3
  • $150 starting March 4
