IWD tile: Count Her In
FREE - Registration Required

Join us in Palmerston for a series of events celebrating International Women's Day, themed "Count Her In: Invest in Women. Accelerate Progress." Aligned with the UN's 68th Commission on the Status of Women, our events aim to spotlight and tackle the critical barriers to economic inclusion for women and girls. Despite progress, challenges in education, employment, financial services, and literacy persist, hindering gender equality. Through forums, workshops, exhibitions, and more, we'll explore solutions and empower women and girls to learn, earn, and lead. Together, we can forge a path to a gender-equal world where every woman and girl is valued and supported. Join the movement in Palmerston and be part of accelerating progress towards economic empowerment for all.
