Dear UCSF Community,

We are delighted to announce the sixth annual UCSF celebration of International Women's Day (March 8) and the start of Women’s History Month. From March 6 through March 10, the UCSF community is invited to recognize, honor, and celebrate the contributions of women at UCSF.

Sponsored by the UCSF Committee on the Status of Women, Office of Diversity and Outreach, Women of UCSF Health, and Women in Tech @ UCSF ([email protected]), International Women’s Day programming includes in-person networking events; a Black Women’s Health & Livelihood Initiative panel on community and wellness; stories of women leaders in health care; a discussion on mental health and resilience; and much more. 

Please visit the event website for the full schedule of events.

This year’s International Women's Day campaign theme is #EmbraceEquity. The theme asks us all to imagine a gender-equal world, free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination—a world that is diverse, equitable, and broadly inclusive. This theme resonates here at UCSF, where we recognize that celebrating progress and taking action to support greater inclusion and equity go hand in hand.

We hope that you attend UCSF International Women’s Day events. All genders are welcome.
