Event Details

We are excited to present our International Women’s Day event for the fifth year in a row! We’ve expanded this year into a full day conference as well as bringing back our feminist vendor market.

We celebrate International Women’s Day yet again by using this platform to explore ideas on how we can all work to advance intersectional gender equity. As always, Marit Collective centres local voices with compelling discussion and nuanced examination of key issues.

We uphold that practical focus on knowledge into action in offering this second year of our “Know Better, Do Better” conference — providing opportunities to gain insight & to deeply examine important concepts so that we can grow in our understanding as we push to improve our world.

We invite you to join us for this day-long immersive conference with talks and breakout workshops on topics including a call to action in creating a more equitable world; gender-based challenges in the workforce as well as equitable hiring practices; masculinity in advancing gender equity, reproductive justice, queer allyship, respectful parenting, sex worker allyship, caregiving through the lens of birth & death doula work, and working to strengthen diverse arts & culture in Waterloo Region.

Enjoy the beautiful facilities at CIGI as you meet & mingle with other conference attendees while you soak in main stage talks and compelling workshops, with complimentary coffee/tea & nibbles, a fun & thoughtful "climate change cabaret" performance, and a free, curated Feminist Market to browse, featuring an array of local vendors and businesses!


The conference venue is easily accessible by public transit. Parking is available on-site at CIGI.


Tiered ticket prices:
$90 - general admission
$30 - low-income accessible pricing
$150 - pay-it-forward pricing for those capable (to subsidize the cost so others can attend)

Early bird ticket pricing of $75 in effect until end of day February 29!
