What’s on at your campus for International Women’s Day

Come and celebrate International Women’s Day with events on your campus! Join in this year’s theme of #eachforequal, because an equal world is an enabled world.

International Women’s Day is held annually on 8 March. As this year’s date falls on a Sunday, many of La Trobe’s International Women’s Day events have been spread throughout the week.

Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day. We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women’s achievements.

Collectively, each one of us can help create a gender equal world.

Let’s all be #EachforEqual.

Take photos on the day using this hand pose and post them to social media using #eachforequal. Remember to tag @mylatrobe too so we can share! Photo credit: International Women’s Day page.

Remember to tag @mylatrobe in your ‘Each for Equal’ pics so we can share them on our channels.
