Good2Give is proud to be the official workplace giving partner for UN Women National Committee Australia’s International Women’s Day Campaign.
This year’s theme Leave No Woman Behind looks at the crucial role woman play within the humanitarian and disaster space.
“Women’s knowledge and expertise as leaders, planning for and responding to disasters and conflict can help protect and empower women and girls so that they can survive and thrive.
– UN Women National Committee Australia
The empowerment of girls and women across the globe; in education, the workplace, and in politics is key to economic growth, a sustainable future, and security and peace. Gender equality is listed as goal number 5 on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and is necessary for the future of our planet, as well as being a fundamental human right.
The UN Women National Committee Australia is hosting a number of breakfast events across Australia with speakers experienced in crisis prevention, gender issues, women’s leadership and social justice.
These events will delve into the crucial roles women play in disaster planning and response, including risk reduction, rebuild and restore, and peace processes. They will also highlight the effect disasters have specifically on women and girls – According to UN Women National Committee Australia, women and children are 14 times more likely to die or be injured in the wake of a natural disaster.
