International Women’s Day is a global day to recognize and celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women and girls, as well as to raise awareness of progress towards achieving gender equality. The Government of Canada’s theme for International Women’s Day 2023 is Every Woman Counts.

This event, a collaboration with Shared Services Canada and its Women's Network, will bring together a dynamic panel of esteemed women leaders from the public service to discuss change, transformation and reinvention.

This annual conversation will provide insight and advice, but also empower and inspire participants on our shared journey toward a gender-equal world.
