International Women’s Day

As one of PWA’s signature events, International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated in true Pacific Island style each year in the month of March.

The PWA International Women’s Day celebrates the efforts and successes of all women in their roles as a parent, carers, workers in Queensland, Australia and other nations.

The objective of the day is to enhance the sisterhood within our community and celebrate the experiences and achievements of women. This year, the Queensland Women’s Week theme is: “Celebrate our present. Own our future.”


We were thrilled to bring two events to our community this year:

In light of the lockdown announcements being put in place across greater Brisbane from 29th March to 1st April, we are incredibly thankful to have had an opportunity to host our International Women’s Day Celebrations on 13th & 27th March 2021.

On behalf of the Pasifika Women’s Alliance we thank all those that attended our events, our sponsors, partners, guest speakers, MC’s & volunteers! We are always humbled by the support of our community to host events where our people can come together.

The real work to creating a better future for women and our communities however does not end here! We encourage you to become PWA members and join our sisterhood of Pasifika women inspiring change.

To ensure the safety of our community, if you attended our event and are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms now – we ask that you get tested and alert us. Stay safe and take extra care!
