    Queensland Women’s Week

    In 2017 Queensland Women’s Week celebrations will be held from 6 to 12 March, and will include a state-wide series of events and activities.

    The theme for the week is:

    Queensland Women: Be involved. Lead the way.

    This theme encourages women and girls to participate, and pursue leadership roles, in their community and workplace.

    This page will be updated with more information about Queensland Women’s Week as it becomes available.

    Queensland Women’s Week grants

    We encouraged organisations to apply for grants totalling $150,000 to host events and activities across the state’s urban, rural, regional and remote communities during Queensland Women’s Week.

    Grant applications have now closed.

    Assessment of the grants is being undertaken by a panel, led by YWCA Queensland who are administering the grant program on our behalf. We will work closely with them to deliver funding to the successful grant applicants to host events and activities celebrating the achievements of all Queensland women.

    International Women’s Day

    International Women’s Day, held globally on 8 March each year, is a highlight of Queensland Women’s Week. On that day, Queensland women join millions of others throughout the world to celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of women in the past, present and future.
