All women on Saba are welcome to attend the festivities from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm which are hosted by Commissioner of Gender Affairs Rolando Wilson with funding from the Public Entity Saba. There will be an award ceremony to recognize a number of outstanding women. Music will be provided by DJ Zanderzone. The dress code is cocktail.

International Women’s Day is on March 8, but because that day falls on a Monday, it was decided to host the event for the women on Saba on Saturday before. This year’s International Women’s Day theme is “Women and leadership; achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world.”

“All women are encouraged to come out to mingle, socialize, and have a good time. We have many outstanding women on this island. Women helping out others, giving to the community without asking anything in return.  We have good leaders, successful businesswomen. Women make things happen. They are the force behind the family. Things have not been easy after the 2017 hurricanes and during the current COVID-19 pandemic. It is only right to recognize all women,” Wilson said.

Last year’s International Women’s Day celebration was a great success with several activities, including a reception at Sunny Valley Community Center with former Netherlands Antilles Prime Minister Maria Liberia-Peters.

Views from Estelle Autrey:  Helping diversity in the tech industry 
Hello there, I have been working on a school project on Women in the Tech industry. As I’m sure you know, there are so many well-known men in Tech. I found this inspiring article on top 50 women in the tech field. It is a great read, and I think this post will really help promote diversity in the tech industry. https://www.wizcase.com/blog/top-women-in-the-tech-industry/
