IWD 2023: Virtual Event

Join us virtually for International Women’s Day (IWD) 2023 as we celebrate under the official theme, Cracking the Code: Innovation for a gender equal future.

In 2023, our pre-eminent fundraising events were held on Friday 3 March 2023. We heard from leaders and changemakers who are redefining innovation – creating new social, economic and cultural codes for a gender equal future, and help us raise much needed funds to accelerate gender equality.

Catch up on all the action through our virtual hub, available until midnight Sunday, 19 March. Tickets still available. 

Guests joining virtually will be able to explore all the UN Women Australia events around the country via our interactive virtual hub – far more than just a streaming platform or zoom call. You will be able to access our full program of IWD 2023 speakers, including the headline speakers in the main auditorium and breakout rooms streaming the local live events. You will also be able to immerse yourself in UN Women stories and projects, and make a life-changing donation. This interactive experience and our speaker content will be available to view until midnight on Sunday 19 March 2023.
