International Women's Day
On March 8, 2018, the International Institute will host our annual International Women’s Day lunch to celebrate the achievements immigrants and business leaders. International Women’s Day is a global phenomenon, and in Boston we celebrate by bringing 300-400 people together in a festive, supportive atmosphere to honor the immigrant & refugee community. One of the aims of this event is to highlight impact of refugees and immigrants on the economy: they give energy to our region, comprise a reliable and stable workforce, and are critical to the growth of innovation in all fields. The lunch will celebrate the achievements of refugees and immigrants, and honor three women for their contributions to their own industries.
