Women in Lighting to hold Global Gathering on International Women’s Day

(Worldwide) – Global online event to mark WiL’s second anniversary.

Women in Lighting has announced that it will host a worldwide event on 8 March to celebrate International Women’s Day.

The WiL Global Gathering will also mark the second anniversary of the Women in Lighting project, and will be another opportunity to connect its growing network and community of international lighting professionals.

Divided into three parts to ensure that participants from different time zones around the world can participate, the day-long event will feature a selection of sessions under four themes: Inspiration, Project, Action and Social.

The Inspiration sessions will feature talks from four inspirational speakers, Dorothy Di Stefano, Jorg Seemann, Michela Bonzi and Anne Militello. These talks will be followed by live Q&A sessions moderated by WiL’s Sharon Stammers and Martin Lupton.

In the Project sessions, a range of speakers will present an overview of their project work, or spotlight a particular project.

The Action sessions will consist of a presentation about current initiatives, ranging from dark skies in New Zealand to the GreenLight Alliance in Europe, and thoughts about the lighting profession as shared from LATAM.

Finally, the Social sessions will see a return of WiL’s popular Social Roulette where, for an hour, participants can virtually meet and share their background, inspirations and daily lives with new and old friends in short, three-minute bursts. Participants will be randomly matched to a selection of other attendees, helping to naturally grow the initiative’s community.

The Global Gathering is sponsored by formalighting, alongside Casambi, Ledra, Fos and Huda Lighting.

Registration for the event is now open. More information can be found here.
