This year's program will be an in-person event.

The International Women’s Day Committee invites members of the La Crosse community and beyond to a celebration of International Women’s Day.

The celebration will consist of a panel discussion with a special emphasis on how women are celebrated in their country as well as their experiences in both their country of origin and the U.S. Panelists will include

Dina Zavala representing Honduras

After the panelists speak, time will be set aside for questions from the audience.

A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women's equality. Collectively we can all #EmbraceEquity.

Community members are encouraged to strike the IWD #EmbraceEquity pose and send a selfie to Miranda Panzer at We'll be posting selfies on the International Women's Day social media.
