YWiB SFU is hosting our pillar event, the International Women's Day Gala, on March 9, 2019!

This year's Gala theme is Reach, Rise, Redefine - a raw and honest narrative that speaks to the true challenges that women have faced in their journeys, and how they were able to conquer them. The gala will feature a keynote, intimate roundtable discussions, and the unveiling of SFU's first ever Women of the Year Awards.
