International Women’s Day
International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated around the world on the 8th of March and is a day to reflect on how far we have come and how far we still have to go to truly achieve gender equality.
UN Women’s global theme for IWD 2019 is ‘Think equal, build smart, innovate for change’, linking with the UN Commission on the Status of Women’s focus on social protection, public services and sustainable infrastructure.
In Australia, for IWD 2019, UN Women NC Australia is joining forces with Chief Executive Women and Male Champions of Change – the two preeminent organisations focused on women in leadership and gender equality in business – to showcase our best event series yet, from 5-8 March, focused on our national theme, ‘More Powerful Together’.
Australia’s IWD 2019 theme, More Powerful Together, recognises the important role we all play – as women, men, non-binary and gender diverse people. It takes all of us, working in collaboration and across that which sometimes divides us, breaking down stereotypes and gendered roles to create a world where women and girls everywhere have equal rights and opportunities.
More Powerful Together is a clarion call to stand in unison for gender equality.
