Is your Council ready for Women’s Week?

Applications are now open for the 2023 NSW Women’s Week Grants Program, with $100,000 in funding available for women-focused events held between 6-12 March, 2023.

Minister for Women, Bronnie Taylor, is encouraging local councils and not-for-profit organisations to apply for a share of the funding to hold events that celebrate and connect women and girls in NSW.

“NSW Women’s Week is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the many achievements and accomplishments of women and girls across this great state,” Mrs Taylor said.

“It is also a time for us to shine a light on what we can do to bring women together to share our strengths, support each other and work towards gender equality.

“I urge organisations to submit their applications to help them deliver these important events for their local community.”

Events funded by the grants program must support at least one of the key priorities of the NSW Women’s Strategy 2023-26:

  • Economic opportunity and advancement
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Participation and empowerment

Past events included financial independence workshops, street dance lessons and women in STEM seminars.

Applications close Sunday, 4 December 2022.
