March 8th, International Women’s Day (IWD), is a great day to celebrate social, economic, cultural, and political achievements while raising awareness against the biases that women face.

We invite you to submit templates that cover equity, diversity, and inclusion topics, or that challenge stereotypes, or that draw attention to bias or discrimination. We will accept all kinds of templates - icebreakers, workshops, team building, retrospectives,  education and more.

Judging will be based on:

Wow! I totally didn’t expect this. Thank you all so much. I am absolutely humbled. 

This template has been on my agenda for a long time - and I have a few people to thank in the DEI community who provided invaluable feedback to help me fine-tune it. :)
