Let’s celebrate it. Women shine in events. Our industry is successful because of the contribution they make. And International Women’s Day is a time to shine the light on this reality.

Some of our industry’s shining lights will be on stage to share their story, inspire strong collaboration between genders at all levels of industry and show their support for the careers of young women. They are true advocates for the 2017 – #BeBoldForChange

International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

International Women’s Day (IWD) has been observed since in the early 1900’s – a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialised world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies. International Women’s Day is a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender equality.

This year, the theme for International Women’s Day is Be Bold for Change (#BeBoldForChange) – take ground-breaking action that truly drives the greatest change for women and encourages both men and women to join forces and become leaders within their own spheres of influence.
