International Women’s Day activities

08 maart 2024 09:00 t/m 14:00 - Locatie: Aula, Auditorium | Zet in mijn agenda

The TU Delft celebrates International Women's Day with the theme "One World, Thousand Women". The theme shows how beautiful it is that each woman is unique and different, but also how important it is to recognise the role of women as agents of change, driving progress towards prosperous and equitable economies and a healthy planet for future generations. In a world facing multiple crises that put immense pressure on communities, achieving gender equality is more important than ever. 

DEWIS (Delft Women in Science) will celebrate the occasion from 12 February to 8 March with interesting activities such as discussions, presentations, an exhibition and a special lunch.  

On 8 March (9:00-13:30), an inspiring celebration will take place in the auditorium of the Aula, with trainer Esther Mollema, an engaging and insightful panel and captivating music and dance.  

During the day we will explore the need for women in scientific leadership. To find sustainable solutions to our global challenges, we need women to contribute. Why are women urgently needed to solve the climate crisis, accelerate the transition to clean energy and tackle our health challenges? How can we unleash the vast untapped talent - starting with filling classrooms, laboratories and boardrooms with women scientists? 

Your presence will add to the richness of this empowering event. 

Everybody from the TUD community is welcome – diversity is the root of success!
