The Department of Local Government and Communities is supporting community groups and organisations to mark International Women's Day this month.
International Women's Day will be celebrated globally on 8 March 2017. The theme for IWD 2017 is 'Empower a Woman, Empower a Nation', which recognises gender equality as economic and social imperatives.
DLGC has developed a suite of downloadable promotional resources to help groups, organisations and individuals promote and celebrate IWD 2017 through their own events or activities.
IWD ribbons (maximum of 100 per organisation) are also available to order from DLGC free of charge for groups to distribute at their IWD events.
Groups hosting an event can register the details on DLGC's website and have it promoted on the online events calendar.
