Women across NSW will benefit from a share of $100,000 on offer towards community, education and mentoring events set to take place during NSW Women's Week 2020.
Minister for Women, Bronnie Taylor today urged all local government and not-for-profit organisations to host events during the week in March and apply for a share of the NSW Government grant funding from today.
"NSW Women's Week is a unique opportunity to celebrate the diverse contributions of women across our state," Mrs Taylor said.
"We are looking for events that not only bring women and girls together but also offer practical support to help women to lead their best lives possible."
Events should support at least one of the key priorities of the NSW Women's Strategy 2018-2022 by: improving women's financial wellbeing and security; encouraging a holistic approach to health and wellbeing; or helping women to build confidence and celebrate their achievements.
"Women from all walks of life will be celebrated during NSW Women's Week including women living in our rural communities, Aboriginal women and women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds," Mrs Taylor added.
Successful events held last year included a women in business workshops, a networking event for women working in innovation and technology and a Women's Rugby 7's tournament.
NSW Women's Week will run from 2 - 8 March 2020. International Women's Day will be celebrated on 8 March 2020.
