International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated around the world on the 8th of March. Since 1990, UN Women Australia has hosted the pre-eminent IWD events around the country representing the United Nations Gender Equality agency.

Attending our official IWD events is a fantastic way to celebrate women’s achievements and show your people, your clients and the community that you support the largest movement for gender equality in the world.

International Women’s Day 2021: Women in Leadership

The global UN Women theme for International Women’s Day (IWD) 2021 was “Women in Leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world”. This theme celebrated the tremendous efforts by women and girls around the world in shaping a more equal future.

Women bear the brunt of problems ranging from poverty to climate change, but they also possess assets and talents to solve them.

At our IWD events we shared incredible stories from women who inspire, lead and are committed to making a difference every day. Find out more about our IWD 2021 theme here
