2018 will mark thirteen years of the Illawarra International Women’s Day Committee and annual event.
The 2018 event will again follow a jam packed format, with accomplished journalist, television presenter, and three-time bestselling author Jessica Rowe as keynote speaker.
The day will again award scholarships for Illawarra women with nominations now open for the 2018 event.
The scholarships, valued at $2,000 each, are awarded to encourage Illawarra women who might not otherwise have the opportunity to expand their knowledge, skill and experience in a field of their interest or in which they have shown great potential.
The six scholarships are:
· Cate Stevenson IWD Scholarship for Women – Education, Business & Community Service
· Kerryn McCann IWD Scholarship for Women – Athletics
· Aunty Mary IWD Scholarship for Indigenous Women – General
· Creative Spirit IWD Scholarship for Women – Arts
· Beryl Lewis Scholarship for Older Women
· Dr Margaret Gardiner Scholarship for Medical Research
For more information on scholarships please refer to the Scholarships tab on the website.
The winners will be announced at the 2018 International Women’s Day event on Friday 2 March 2018 at the WIN Entertainment Centre.
