International Women's Day 2021

March 8, 2021 (12:00 PM - 1:30 PM) (PST)


International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. On March 8, the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce is excited to host our 7th annual International Women's Day celebration.


A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change. So let's all choose to challenge. How will you help forge a gender equal world?

Celebrate women's achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.

Social Media Campaign

Raise your hand assertively and show that you choose to challenge inequity. Show your solidarity in choosing to challenge and call out aspects that are unhelpful to women. Will you raise your hand high and pledge to #ChooseToChallenge?
