2022 NSW WOMEN’S WEEK SET TO BE THE BIGGEST EVER
Financial security workshops, career guidance for young women and a women’s dance class are among 24 events that will promote and support women’s education, employment and wellbeing during the upcoming NSW Women’s Week.
Minister for Women Bronnie Taylor said the scope of events would help communities celebrate the diverse contributions of local women.
“From Milparinka to Westmead, we are bringing women together to celebrate and inspire one another. This week will deliver a wide range of practical supports that will benefit women right across our fabulous State,” Mrs Taylor said.
“We’re celebrating women from all of walks of life, and I’m absolutely delighted that the schedule of events reflects both the creativity and diversity of NSW women.”
NSW Women’s Week runs from Monday, March 7 to Sunday, March 13, and promotes gender equality while celebrating the social, cultural and political achievements of women.
The NSW Government has provided $100,000 to fund events including a bike maintenance workshop by Ride Dungog, a financial management workshop by Cowra Information and Neighbourhood Centre Inc. and a wellbeing day for expectant women from culturally and linguistically diverse communities in Western Sydney.
“I’m delighted that there is both high calibre and a diverse range of events on offer during what is set to be the biggest NSW Women’s Week ever,” Mrs Taylor said.
“There is something for women of all ages and backgrounds, and I encourage each and every one of you to find out what is happening in your local community this NSW Women’s Week.”
The NSW Women’s Week Grants program provided $3,000 to $5,000 grants to events that support at least one of the key priorities of the NSW Women’s Strategy 2018-2022. These include 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.
