Funding support for Women's Week events
Member for Barwon Roy Butler is urging community organisations and local councils to apply for a share of $100,000 in funding to hold events during Women's Week 2021 (8-14 March).
“The return of this popular program will enable and empower organisations in Barwon to hold virtual or COVID-safe face-to-face events to help the community connect and celebrate the diverse contributions of local women,” said Mr Butler
“We are looking for events that not only bring women and girls together but also those which offer practical support to help women across the region.”
Events should support at least one of the key priorities of the NSW Women’s Strategy 2018-2022 by: improving women’s financial wellbeing and security; encouraging a holistic approach to health and wellbeing or helping women to build confidence and celebrate their achievements.
Previous successful events include women in business workshops, a networking event for women working in innovation and technology and a Women’s Rugby 7’s tournament.
NSW Women’s Week promotes gender equality while celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
