In March of 2018, The University of Iowa Multicultural and International Student Support and Engagement (MISSE) held its inaugural International Women's Day Summit. The planning and implementation of the summit was led by Isabela Flores, Simona Flores, and Aralia Ramirez with the support of Tabitha Wiggins, Associate Director of MISSE.

Thmission of this summit is to empower and celebrate diverse women, specifically Black, Indigenous, women of color, and to explore the dimensions of themselves.
