Celebrating International Women's Day


“International Women’s Day is a chance to celebrate women’s achievements and raise awareness of the benefits that an inclusive world brings to people, planet and profit. Alarmingly, the pandemic and the resulting economic fallout sees gender equality falling behind.

The IWD theme of #ChooseToChallenge urges all to take responsibility and call out gender bias and inequality. Whether that is through strengthening skills of women throughout the supply chain; facilitating dialogue with partners and stakeholders on the value of gender equality; or supporting equal participation in politics and leadership to help drive improved outcomes for all society.

Together, we can not only make a significant difference to the lives of women, but impact humankind.” Sharon Morris GM CIPS Australia & New Zealand
