The aim of the day is to celebrate the history and diversity of Middlesbrough through the accomplishments of women from across its diverse cultures and communities.
The event – in partnership with Middlesbrough Council’s Stronger Communities team – will take place in The Crypt on Thursday, March 7 from 9.30am to 2.40pm.
The event is aimed at women from all backgrounds and will involve a number of speakers as well as stalls promoting the support and services offered by the Council.
The theme for this year’s Day is Balance for Better which looks at how to improve women’s representation in all walks of life from politics to boardrooms and sport to statues.
An artist-led workshop will also provide an opportunity for those attending to create a unique piece of art.
Organiser Arooj Amjad said: “Our International Women’s Day event is a celebration of Middlesbrough’s history and diversity, and we look forward to welcoming women from all cultures and communities.
“We’ve got some truly inspirational speakers from our different communities, who will be sharing their experiences and accomplishments and how these can inspire the younger generation to achieve their goals.”
Food and refreshments will be provided.
