With company policies like affirmative action, maternity leave and blind recruitment helping to combat the pay gap and the glass ceiling, Australia is making progress towards equal representation of genders in business. While there is still considerable progress to be made, it seems that the importance of feminism is now more widely embraced than ever. Now, it is not the question of whether we’ll achieve equality in the future, but how we’ll achieve it.

This year’s International Women's Day campaign theme is #BalanceforBetter. From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate it’s presence.

A lively event not to be missed

Attend the International Women's Day Flagship Event for the Sunshine Coast and enjoy excellent networking opportunities and lively discussion.
