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 everyone’s achievements as women. This year, the Queensland Women’s Week theme is: “Celebrating our diverse community of strong women.”

On behalf of the Pasifika Women’s Alliance, we thank all those who joined us to celebrate our diverse community of strong women this International Women’s Day 2020!

Events like this would not be possible without the support of our community so we acknowledge and extend our sincere gratitude to all our amazing volunteers, sponsors, inspirational panelists, MC – Nola Rasmussen, Photographer – T.Lee Photography, talented performers – Tilomai Dance Group and brilliant collaborators – Exotic_La & Something Extra Brisbane.

Last but definitely not the least, we thank all of our PWA members & those who attended their very first PWA event! It warmed our hearts to have women of all ages and diverse backgrounds join our celebrations.
