Celebrate International Women's Day 2024 with your Bookkeeper Community. ICB has collated a day of inspiring speakers, panels and activities to celebrate everything that women do. As part of this virtual event, you'll hear from industry leaders and innovating bookkeepers; and you get to spend time with the most inspiring people of all – ICB members! 

The official IWD 2024 campaign theme is Inspire Inclusion.  

“When we inspire others to understand and value women's inclusion, we forge a better world. And when women themselves are inspired to be included, there's a sense of belonging, relevance and empowerment.” 

However you define your gender – all are welcome to enjoy the day.   

Our International Women's Day event is free to ICB members, and just £29 for non-members.
