We are pleased to announce that the Local Government Association of Tasmania, Local Government Professionals Australia Tasmania, the Tasmanian Council of Social Service and the Tasmanian State Service are once again hosting a cross-sectoral International Women’s Day awards program and event in 2021.

The cross-sectoral women’s awards program provides a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women and their peers and recognise and give visibility to outstanding contributions by women across these sectors.

International Women’s Day 2021 Theme

The theme for International Women’s Day in 2021 is #ChooseToChallenge. A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we are all responsible for our own thoughts and actions — all day, every day.

We can choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequity. We can choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements.

Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world. From challenge comes change, so let’s all choose to challenge, celebrate women’s achievements, raise awareness against bias and take action for equality.

Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
