The WIL Global Gathering is going live in a few days! Women in Lighting team is very excited to invite you to the first #WILGlobalGathering with the aim to celebrate together the International Women’s day, the 2nd anniversary of the Women in Lighting (WIL) Project and to connect our growing network and community together.

The WIL Global Gathering is open to everyone in the lighting community regardless of gender. We invite you all to join us online on 8th March 2021 to be inspired and connect together. It features a selection of sessions themed as follows: Inspiration, Project, Action, and Social.

The event is divided into three parts to ensure that we are able to include presentations from around the world and enable participation from different time zones. This will ensure our event is truly global. Please join us for part of the day or all day if you can. Read the complete schedule for PART 1, PART 2, and PART 3

Happy International Women’s Day to you all and a big thank you to all our sponsors and supporters who have made the event possible.

One of my personal favorite parts of the event is the Networking Social sessions. We have prepared three social Sessions.

The SOCIAL Session is an hour of free-flowing conversation where you can virtually meet and share your background, inspirations, and daily lives with new and old friends in just 3 minutes per conversation. You will be randomly matched to a selection of the other attendees and have 3 minutes to connect, chat and exchange. We really hope that you enter into the spirit of the session, connect with as many people as possible and most of all have fun!

Have you might participate in one of our previous #WILSocialroulette events? Here is a photo memory. If you loved it as much as I did, make sure you join the Social part of the event on Monday.

🔸Join us to celebrate our collectiveness and the international community.
📷 1. Take a photo, 2. upload it (post/story) 3. tag @womeninlighting and hashtag #WILglobalgathering

The WIL community are veterans of the social media challenge and our online event for International Women’s Day is a great time to create a new one. We have chosen not to use the official hashtag from this year’s International Women’s Day and instead use the name of our event: WIL Global Gathering. This is because we want to highlight the diversity and wide range of women and men from around the world who are part of the WIL network and will come together on that day. If you have registered for the event you will receive a pdf with information about it just before the 8th March. – #WILGlobalGathering
