This global awareness day celebrates the economic, political and social achievements of women, past, present and future.
This year, we celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD) on 8 March 2021.
The United Nations theme is ‘Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world’.
To mark the occasion, we are hosting a number of free events and activities to celebrate International Women’s Day during the month of March.
Inspirational stories of women in our community
Recently, we spoke to four local inspirational women and asked them what advice they would give to women who are aspiring to be leaders in their field.
These include a:
- Volunteer Program Director
- leading sportswoman in hockey
- young woman in parliament, and
- an Australian Football League Women’s player.
You can read more about their stories in the March Boroondara Bulletin.
These are just some of the ways we’re celebrating inspirational women in our community as part of International Women’s Day 2021.
