We're kicking off Inclusive Astronomy with month-long celebrations of women and girls in astronomy this February, 2019. Follow the link below to register your event for inclusion in the official IAU100: Inclusive Astronomy calendar.

All events must respect the general goals of the IAU100 initiative in promoting the key role of astronomy for development, education, outreach and diplomacy.
