Dare To Be


Celebrate International Women's Day with Women Techmakers in Modesto, CA for the 3rd year! Join us for a day filled with empowering speeches from thought leaders, moving poems, lively music from a live DJ, and delicious free food. Network with incredible individuals and make lasting connections.

International Women’s Day (IWD) is Women Techmakers’ largest annual event campaign to recognize how women have influenced the tech industry and beyond. It is also a call for gender equity worldwide. In different regions, the focus of celebrations ranges from general respect and appreciation for women to a celebration of women’s economic, political, and social achievements.

IWD is a time to create connections, educate and inspire our tech community, and build a world where all women thrive in tech.


The definition of to dare is to have the courage to try something new; to defy or challenge norms; to be brave and willing to take risks.

For IWD 2023, we are empowering our community to have courage, to dream big and to be bold.

What does it mean to Dare to Be?

How will you “Dare To Be” this International Women’s Day?
