International Women’s Day takes place annually on March 8 to recognize and celebrate women’s achievements, challenge biases, and reflect on and advance efforts towards greater gender equality. UBC is committed to gender equity and inclusion of all women. By challenging and calling out gender bias and inequality, we can all help create a more inclusive UBC.
Across research, education, and university services and student life, women at UBC are making a difference in the lives of others every day. Explore stories of achievement, events, and community resources.
