The Australian National Committee for UN Women is delighted to announce that after two fruitful years of partnership, Aurizon has become a Platinum Partner for another three years in a joint effort to promote gender equality.

Welcoming the renewed partnership, Aurizon’s Managing Director & CEO Lance Hockridge said, “Gender inequalities remain deeply entrenched in our society. Our close partnership with UN Women is one way we are working to address this imbalance globally and in our own workforce."

Since a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on April 25th, UN Women has been working to improve communications, safety and health for women and girls.

With your help, thousands of the most vulnerable women affected by the earthquake have now received urgently needed supplies, including dignity kits.

The dignity kits contain essential items such as soap, underwear, a change of clothes and sanitary products, allowing displaced women and girls to maintain respect, health and hygiene in their daily lives following the devastating earthquake.
