Cochrane's 2022 International Women’s Day Events

5 women of different nationalities and cultures standing together

In recognition of International Women's Day (IWD) happening March 8th, Cochrane will be hosting several events and activities. The IWD 2022 theme is “breaking gender bias and reducing stereotypes and discrimination to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion.”

Anne Anderson Walk
