We are in our 3rd year of running our one-day Hornsby Ku-ring-gai International Women’s Day event
There are also events happening across our Hornsby and Ku-ring-gai areas in the form of an International Women’s Day Festival Week (IWDFW) with an IWDFW Program that covers everything we have found for women that is happening across the area.
There will be IWDF Finale on Friday 9th March, showcasing local services and programs being offered through community and private organisations with information and experiential stalls for women. The Friday Finale will aim to be colourful, inspiring and experiential in its essence and activity. This is a fundraising opportunity as well as an awareness campaign.
The money raised from the Festival Program will be added to a dedicated fund which will support new women’s wellbeing projects* in the coming year. The Rotary Club of Wahroonga will oversee the distribution of funds throughout the year. The official International Women’s Day theme for the 2018 event is #PressforProgress. The organizing committee would like to ensure the progress we make is to bring self-care into a normal part of a woman’s life.
How can we support others if we are not taking care of ourselves? Therefore #LoveMeFirst or #MeFirst will be our theme and stalls will be asked to promote self-care, selfnurturing and valuing yourself as a woman and the contribution you bring. There are 2 opportunities to get involved: • The International Women’s Festival Week Program 2-9 th March 2018.
There are sponsorship opportunities for businesses wanting to get involved.
International Women's Day at the Hornsby Mall, 9th March, 2018 is to celebrate women in our community.
