NSW Women’s Week has been established as a centrepiece to support the NSW Government’s commitment to improve the lives of women in NSW. Through a series of events and activities, it celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, and promotes gender equality.
The week coincides with International Women’s Day, and the NSW Women of the Year Awards.
The development and delivery of NSW Women’s Week constitutes Action 3.3 of the Year Two Action-Plan of the NSW Women’s Strategy 2018-2022.
The specific objectives of the week are to:
- coordinate a NSW Women’s Week to enable a broader focus, discussion and celebration of women’s achievements throughout the state; and
- launch a grant program to increase community engagement with NSW Women’s Week.
NSW Women’s Week is delivered by the NSW Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ).
All of the week’s events and activities promote one of the three priorities drawn from NSW Women’s Strategy 2018-2022, which are:
- Economic opportunity and advancement
- Health and wellbeing
- Participation and empowerment
