International Women's Day has been celebrated for 108 years—which, considering women have been around since the dawn of humankind, is not very long—and the fight for gender justice and parity still has a long way to go. In fact, the World Economic Forum’s 2017 Global Gender Report estimates we have two more centuries to go until all genders are treated equally. At this annual event, hear from influential speakers as they talk about how to accelerate that process. Panelists include athlete and adventurer Melissa Arnot Reid, MoxiWorks Accountant Mavis Chi, Head of Seattle Girls School Brenda Leak, Genneve CEO Jill Angelo, King County Sheriff Mitzi Johanknecht, and activist Lisa Shannon.
