It's International Women's Day tomorrow, March 8.



All this week individuals and organizations around the globe have been celebrating the contributions of women and using this occasion to focus on improving conditions for women in social, economic, and political realms.



NCWIT is officially celebrating International Women's Day this year for the first time. We believe it's a perfect opportunity for organizations to highlight women's achievements in information technology and focus on the need to improve women's participation. Visit our International Women's Day page for links, a history, and information about participating member companies, or read our press release.
