IWD Speaker Directory

International Women's Day 2024

The International Women's Day (IWD) Speaker Directory is a platform where speakers can be listed to gain visibility and bookings for IWD events.

It's a valuable resource for both speakers and for organizations looking for speakers for their IWD events. You can submit your profile to the directory which is used by various organizations to find and book speakers for events around International Women's Day.


Option 1 - Done With You

  1. We use our expertise as a leading speaker bureau and IWD account to submit an optimized, engaging and compelling entry for you in the Speaker Directory.
  2. We submit the entry on your behalf.

Option 2 - Do It Yourself

  1. Create an account on the IWD website and log in to submit your IWD Speaker listing.
  2. Complete the submission form including a keyword-optimized, specific and engaging elevator pitch of approximately 20 words. To help, you can research examples of other speakers in the IWD Speaker Directory first.
  3. Also include an optimized longer description in third person. The IWD website says this “should be succinct, informative and outline what will be covered for the audience..” and your listing “should contain sufficient information that Event Managers are compelled to make contact or secure a booking.”

Which option to choose?

Asking us to submit your listing to the IWD Speaker Directory could significantly enhance your visibility and opportunities for speaking engagements.

By handling the submission process professionally and quickly, we ensure that your profile is presented in the best possible light, potentially increasing your chances of being selected for speaking opportunities.

This approach not only streamlines the process for you but also demonstrates your commitment to promoting gender equality through effective visibility and engagement in significant platforms like the IWD Speaker Directory.

Social Media cards

IWD asks people to strike the #InspireInclusion pose to show solidarity and inspire others to help forge an inclusive world by sharing your #InspireInclusion image across social media using #IWD2024 #InspireInclusion.

You can also use your image on social media cards that are available to download from the IWD website. You can co-brand these cards with your own branding, add text and insert an image before sharing them on social media using the hashtags #InspireInclusion and #IWD2024.

Editable PowerPoint versions are also available for those without Photoshop, making it easy to personalise the cards. Additionally, there's an option to submit a web link of the social media post featuring the #InspireInclusion card for potential sharing by the IWD platform.

  3. We submit the image on your behalf along with your #InspireInclusion message and key information about you.
