International Women's Day

Theme of International Women's Day

International Women’s Day (IWD) is all about celebrating the achievements and accomplishments of all the amazing women around us. Signifying how far we have come as a society.

The day first made its way to Australia as the Militant Women’s Movement called for equal pay for equal work. In 1931, annual marches began in Sydney and Melbourne and continue to be held today!

The campaign theme for IWD 2024, set by the United Nations Australia, is Count Her In: Invest in Women. Accelerate Progress

While commendable strides have been taken, women encounter substantial challenges in attaining equal engagement in the economy. Without fair access to education, employment opportunities, financial services, and literacy, achieving gender equality remains a distant goal. It is imperative that we guarantee women and girls equal opportunities to enhance their abilities and empower them to learn, earn, and lead.

Why do you think it is important to celebrate International Women’s Day?

I think its important to celebrate International Women’s Day as it is a day that allows us to come together to celebrate the achievements of the amazing women in our lives both inside and outside of the workplace. I think this day also acts as a reminder of the challenges that women around the world continue to face each day, which is why it remains such a significant date for all.

What is International Women’s Day to you?

A day to recognise the big and small achievements of Women as we continue to face a gender imbalance.

Why is investing in women important to you?

As someone who has benefited from the support, mentorship and guidance of others, I believe that supporting and investing in women helps to create diverse and resilient organisation's. By investing in women, we're investing in a more inclusive future for everyone.

To the incredible women of WorkSafe Guardian, we thank you for all that you have done!
