Breda International Women's Day Event 2023

When: March 8, 2023

Where: Breda, Netherlands


International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality. IWD Breda was celebrated first 2021 and then in 2022 with inspiring speakers, yet the global campaign theme continues all year long to encourage action. A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change.

Let’s all choose to challenge and celebrates women’s achievements. Raise awareness against bias. Choose to make an impact and embrace equity, with large or small outcomes. Change is progress, either way.

The program of IWD 2023 curates a ‘highly ranked’ speaker and provides an opportunity to network during the International Women’s Day in Breda. It isn’t just a day to empower women themselves, but a day to join forces for a more impactful reality towards equity for all.

General Elanor Boekholt-O’Sullivan
General Elanor Boekholt-O’Sullivan earned her stripes in the Ministery of Defense in a traditional male dominated world, breaking the unthinkable reality we live in by becoming the first female ‘3-star General’ in the Royal Dutch Airforce. While NATO territory is under threat, this need of a well-equipped defense force is more vivid than ever.

Join us, on the 8th March 2023, together we can make it happen.
