International Women's Day

Celebration of WomenThe University acknowledges International Women's Day (IWD), which is held on 8 March each year. Wear Purple, Green and White to show your support for International Women's Day.

The theme for International Women’s Day 2018 is “Leave no woman behind”, examining the vital role that women play in humanitarian and disaster planning and response. 

Women’s knowledge and expertise as leaders, planning for and responding to disasters and conflict can help protect and empower women and girls so that they can survive and thrive.

If you are interested in organising an IWD event on your campus, please contact Kim McDonogh in the Equity and Diversity Office.
