Queensland Women’s Week 2017

Empowering women into decision making and leadership positions.

Queensland Women’s Week recognises and celebrates the achievements of Queensland’s women and girls. Everyone has a role to play in creating a supportive and inclusive environment where women and girls can succeed.

This year Queensland Women’s Week celebrations will be held from 6 to 12 March with the theme: Queensland Women: Be involved. Lead the way.

The theme aims to encourage women and girls to participate, and pursue leadership roles, in their community and workplace. Leadership is a realistic and achievable goal for all women and girls. Participating is the first step to leading the way.
