A reminder that this Friday, March 8 is International Women’s Day.
International Women’s Day is an opportunity to celebrate the contributions of women. However it is also a time to highlight the actions needed to accelerate gender equality moving forward.
This International Women’s Day, the theme is ‘More Powerful Together‘ recognising the important role we all play – as women, men, non-binary and gender diverse people, to accelerate gender equality and create a world where women and girls everywhere have equal rights and opportunities. It requires all of our participation to create a world where everybody can live a life free from violence and discrimination. More Powerful Together is a call for all of us to take a stand in unison for gender equality.
If we are to realise the goal of a gender equal world, we must all play a part and show support for women’s empowerment.
For those staff on the City, I hope you can join us at the RMIT IWD celebration planned in Storey Hall.

Time: 10.15–11.45am (10.15–10.45am for refreshments, 10.45–11.45am for discussion)
