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.

COVID-19 has changed the way we do many things and in 2021 we will celebrate International Women’s Day a little differently. 

We are hosting five live events on Friday 5 March in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane and Perth.  

New in 2021, we are live streaming the events concurrently to a virtual platform.  You can watch these live, or for a limited period afterwards, from anywhere across Australia.

Australian of the Year Grace Tame will be joining us as our headline speaker, along with a diverse range of inspirational women leaders.  

Register now! Tickets are available via the links below.  We anticipate high demand for the live events due to restricted numbers so make sure you book before they sell out.

UN Women Australia is delighted to be working with an external events team for our International Women’s Day events. For any questions regarding tickets and access to our events please contact 0478 019 318 or email [email protected]

International Women’s Day 2021: Women in Leadership

The global UN Women theme for International Women’s Day (IWD) 2021 is “Women in Leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world”. This theme celebrates 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 will share 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
