It’s that time of year where SydWest Multicultural Services celebrates women’s achievements as we continue the push for gender equality during celebrations for International Women’s Day (IWD).

This year SydWest will host a special morning event in Glenwood on Thursday 7th March 2024 from 10am to noon.

The keynote will be delivered by 2023 Australian Human Rights Medal award winner Juliana Nkrumah AM.  Our guest speaker is Minister for Communications and Member for Greenway Michelle Rowland. NSW Women’s Minister Jodie Harrison has recorded a video message as part of the formalities.

The event will feature performances from Iranian women’s choir AvaZan (Persian for ‘voices of women’) and a slam poetry performance by Shabnam Siddique - a poet, writer and mixed-media artist.

Lastly, there will be an interactive Bollywood dance session for guests featuring renowned dance instructor Anchal Rastogi.

‘While we come together in March each year for a celebration of women’s achievements, and this year with a focus on inspiring inclusion, it is important that we have conversations about equality for women and girls all year round,’ said Elfa Moraitakis, CEO of SydWest Multicultural Services.

‘At SydWest we are working hard to create opportunities for all women from all different cultural backgrounds to achieve and succeed.’

 SydWest will also show a short video at the local IWD event that showcases clients and staff and their aspirations for inclusion.

You will find the 3 minute version here and a 60 second version here.
