IWD for Business

Disrupt “business as usual” this International Women’s Day!

Cracking the Code: Innovation for a gender equal future

Align your organisation with Australia’s pre-eminent International Women’s Day event series. 

The economic and values case for empowering women is compelling, with research showing gender-diverse companies perform better across a range of indicators – market value, innovation, productivity, talent acquisition and retention, culture and reputation.

We encourage your organisation to align your International Women’s Day (IWD) celebrations with UN Women, the largest global movement for gender equality, and create a starting point for action throughout the year. 

Join us for IWD 2023 to celebrate the contributions of women, create conversations with your staff, clients and customers, and fundraise to make a tangible difference for women and girls globally.

There are many ways your organisation can get involved this IWD:

Purchase purple ribbons for your workplace, customers or clients

Sadly, not everyone has the means to attend our IWD events in person. You can purchase “pay-it-forward” tickets to our live events and virtual hub which will be donated to individuals, community groups and not-for-profit organisations. This is a great way to enable participation amongst groups who may not normally have access to our events.

Register your interest here. More details will be provided once tickets go on sale.

We invite you to amplify UN Women’s IWD messages and celebrations across your organisation and networks. IWD is a powerful moment for UN Women to raise funds for the women and girls of the world who need it most. Access our free IWD resources here.

Let us unite in our efforts, #CrackingtheCode.
