Milton Keynes Community Foundation have celebrated International Women’s Day for years, by holding an event that brings together the women of Milton Keynes to celebrate the day and have a chance to meet and network together as well.
International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.
International Women’s Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century...the theme this year is #EachForEqual
An equal world is an enabled world.
Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day.
We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women’s achievements.
Collectively, each one of us can help create a gender equal world.

This year, we are holding a public ceremony at MK Rose to commemorate the day from 2pm - 2.30pm.
After which, we will be headed to Campbell Park Pavilion for a 'Cake, Cuppa and Conversation' portion of the day with key note speakers.
If you are interested in attending this second portion of the day, please contact Hayley on firstname.lastname@example.org as we have limited spaces and they are available on a first come, first served basis.
This year, Milton Keynes Community Foundation are working with The Parks Trust, MK College, Milton Keynes Fawcett Society and Milton Keynes Soroptimists to deliver this event.
