Getting cash for Women’s Day programs
LOCAL government and not-for-profit community organisations can now apply for a share in $100,000 for International Women’s Day events next year.
Women’s health, social and economic empowerment are set to be key features of the events held during the inaugural NSW Women’s Week in March next year.
“Women are so vital to making Murray a great place to live through their contributions to the workforce, their families, and our community,” Member for Murray Austin Evans said.
“NSW Women’s Week will give local organisations an opportunity to deliver education, mentoring, and other activities like sporting events to encourage local women and girls to fulfil their potential.”
Events must support at least one of the key priorities of the new NSW Women’s Strategy: ■ Improving women’s financial wellbeing and security. ■ Encouraging a holistic approach to health and wellbeing. ■ Helping women and girls build confidence and resilience and celebrating their achievements.
NSW’s first Women’s Week will take place from March 3 to 9, next year.
International Women’s Day will be celebrated on March 8.
Applications close on Monday, November 12 at 5pm.
