About the role
International Women’s Day (IWD) Committees are integral to maximising fundraising outcomes of UN Women Australia’s International Women’s Day (IWD) campaign. They play an important role in increasing participation at IWD events through outreach, promoting live and digital event ticket sales and encouraging digital participation throughout their networks. Committee members also coordinate elements of the events at a local level, contributing local knowledge to planning and delivery and ensuring a positive experience for all guests and volunteers.
We are currently recruiting committee members to join the Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Canberra IWD committees.
The position of committee member is an unpaid volunteer position. Please refer to the position description for more details about the role and how to apply.
About the organisation
A global champion for women and girls, UN Women is the United Nations entity responsible for promoting women’s empowerment and gender equality and was established to accelerate progress to meet the needs of women and girls worldwide.
UN Women Australia is a registered charity in Australia which exists to raise funds for and awareness of UN Women’s work across the Pacific and around the world. UN Women Australia is recognised by UN Women as its partner in Australia to advance UN Women’s agenda.
International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated around the world on the 8th of March. Since 1990, UN Women Australia has hosted the pre-eminent IWD events around the country, celebrating global achievements and discussing actions needed to continue accelerating gender equality.
The events create an opportunity for inclusion, drawing together people from diverse backgrounds across Australia to empower, inspire, motivate and benefit individuals and communities towards advancing gender equality, here in Australia and globally. You can find out more about our IWD events here.
No country in the world has achieved gender equality. Through our events, we aim to put the spotlight on global issues that perpetuate gender inequality and highlight actions we can all take on the path to a gender equal world.
