International Women’s Day (IWD) has been celebrated globally since the early 1990s. It has since grown to become a day of celebration and recognition of women’s achievements. On March 8th, events are held worldwide to celebrate the advancements we have made, and raise awareness of the gender parity we still have yet to accomplish.


International Women's Day Gala 2018

YWiB SFU is excited to announce that we will be hosting our second annual IWD gala (formerly known IWD Conference) on March 3 to continue our support with the worldwide women’s movement. The night will host an opening and closing keynote as well as panelists from outstanding industries who carry a wealth of knowledge and networking opportunities to foster connections among all. Our goal is for delegates to enjoy an evening of celebration, engage in meaningful conversations, and feel inspired to be leaders on all levels: personal, professional, and within the community.


Endless Direction

Our theme focuses on the opportunities and experiences ahead for young women entering the business industry. As many of our guests are at the beginning of the journey towards their careers, we would like to highlight the many different paths and directions that can lead to a dream career. We encourage all emerging leaders to embrace the “Endless Direction” that their lives may take them as our mission is to help delegates find their niche and cultivate success.



Our Team

“We are thrilled to be on the Gala Team this year with the mission of hosting an inspiring night that will highlight successful female leaders within the Greater Vancouver community.”
