Description

International Women's Day (celebrated every year on March 8th) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

This year, please join Alloy 26 for our second annual International Women’s Day Celebration. This year’s official IWD theme is #BalanceforBetter, with a focus on building a gender-balanced world. Over the next few weeks, we’ll add more information to this page so you can learn about this year’s celebration and the free programming we’ll have to offer.

Woman-owned Love Pittsburgh will have a pop-up shop set up during our celebration, selling goodies from their woman-owned vendors. Commonplace Coffee will be offering 20% off beverages for anyone wearing an IWD nametag.
