EDMONDS — The Edmonds International Women’s Day gathering celebrates its fifth anniversary this year.
This year’s theme is EmbraceEquity, said organizers Alicia Crank, of Crank’d Up Consulting, and Megan Wolfe, of Girls on the Run Snohomish County.
The gathering will be held Saturday, March 4, at the Edmonds Waterfront Center, 220 Railroad Ave.
The event will be held in-person and online this year.
“It’s exciting to see all of this come together,” Crank said.
In a segment called Above and Beyond, the event will honor four local women who worked on the front lines of retail and healthcare at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Michelle Li, co-founder of The Very Asian Foundation and former KING 5 anchor, will give the keynote speech.
Mimi Jung, co-anchor of King 5 Mornings, will host a discussion on “The Importance of Representation in Media.”
Other guests include Farah Jadran, reporter for King 5 Mornings and morning Anchor, King 5 Weekend
Crank launched the Edmonds International Women’s Day gathering in 2019 to help under-served girls and women.
“None of this would be possible without the generous support of volunteers and local businesses owners, may who have been a part of this since day one,” Crank said. “I am grateful to all of the organizations that have signed on to support the significant milestone of Edmonds International Women’s Day.”
There are a limited number of in-person general admission tickets available to the public for $25. Virtual attendance is free.
Doors open at noon. Participants can enjoy a selection of food and beverage choices, curated by women chefs, bartenders and leadership at FeedMe Hospitality & Restaurant Group.
