Event description
YWiB SFU is very excited to be hosting our Annual International Women's Day Gala.

About this Event

This year’s IWD Gala theme is “That was Then, This is Now.” It is a phrase that applies to society, and the individual. It is a reflection of your failures, mistakes you have made and learning from them to be successful in the present. This is a topic that is vulnerable to many.

But, we hope attendees are able to see from this evening that simply, everyone makes mistakes and it is how you learn and grow from them that matters. Through intentional conversations with our industry professionals that have experienced their own failures, we want this night to be filled with meaningful connections, and growth for all that attend.

What is IWD?

Our International Women’s Day Gala (IWD) is YWiB’s keynote event. Through bringing together professionals and students, we aim to create a space that celebrates the accomplishments, both past and present, within our community. Our hope is that attendees leave with an expanded view on what is possible and have made a meaningful connection or friend. Though this gala celebrates International Women’s Day, it is not only a celebration of women but a welcoming space for everyone. Each of us have a different story and this night is a celebration of these stories, regardless of who we are.

SFSS x YWiB

This year, we are proud to be collaborating with the Simon Fraser Student Society on our event. They will be hosting the Women of the Year Awards which reaches beyond the Business community to honour self-identified women who set the bar high and drive positive change in their faculties.

The Simon Fraser Student Society is a student-led organization that represents and advocates for the interests of the 25,000+ undergraduate students at SFU. They are your not-for-profit support network and voice at SFU and provide services and support to make your student life better.
