March 8 | 12:00 - 1:00 PM | IWD Speak Out | RSVP for Zoom Link
Caltech's IWD Speak Out is an open mic opportunity for members of the Caltech community to speak up for women in STEM at Caltech and around the world.
2021 Keynote Address by
- Dr. Lindsey Malcom-Piqueux, Assistant VP of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Assessment, and
- Haolu Jane Zhang, graduate student in Mechanical Engineering.
The 2021 IWD global campaign theme is #ChoosetoChallenge. A challenged world is an alert world. We can choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world. From challenge comes change, so let's all choose to challenge. What would an inclusive world look like to you? Join the conversation on March 8th.

International Student Programs (ISP) and the Caltech Center for Inclusion & Diversity (CCID) host this annual program to celebrate the experiences of women and to engage the campus community in support of gender parity. We use an inclusive definition of "woman" and "female" that includes genderqueer women, trans women and nonbinary people.
