Description

On Thursday 8 March, we will be celebrating International Women's Day by presenting the 2018 Inspirational Women of Yarra Award!

The award is open to women, those who identify as women, or groups of women who make a contribution to the Yarra community either through paid or unpaid work, volunteering or simply by being inspirational in the way they live their lives.

You can nominate an exceptional woman or group of women that you know by visiting the nominations page. Nominations are due by Monday 19 February.

At the morning tea, we will be joined by guest speaker, Kristen Hilton who is the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commissioner. The event will feature performances by Yarra's Young Women and Gender Diverse DJ Collective, a showcase of art and photography by Ria Ganis, amazing wares from Sisterworks and delicious catering by the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.

Over the week of celebrations from Saturday 5 to Sunday 11 March, Yarra will be hosting a number of community events including inspirational women guest speakers and panel discussions, DJ performances, art exhibitions, girls’ and women’s sports clinics, fashion shows and events supporting women in business.
