Welcome to the Global Marathon

Women in Engineering & Technology: Inspire. Inform. Change the World

A Message from Ellen Kullman, Chair of the Board and CEO, DuPont

Women in engineering and technology play a critical role in defining how we live and thrive on our shared planet. The Global Marathon--a free, virtual forum--is designed for, by and about women like you to share ideas, gain knowledge and new contacts and feel inspired about your personal and professional contributions in the world.

The Marathon fills the need for a collaborative place for individuals and organizations to come together. Our network facilitates live online presentations and discussions as well as in-person chats, globally and locally.

From March 6-8 - and in conjunction with International Women's Day - join us in local and globally connected presentations and discussions:
