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.
In 2017 Queensland Women’s Week celebrations were held from 6 to 12 March with the theme: Queensland Women: Be involved. Lead the way.
The theme encouraged women and girls to participate, and pursue leadership roles, in their community and workplace.
The theme also aligned with the participation and leadership priority of the Queensland Women’s Strategy which provides a framework for government, the private sector and the wider Queensland community to take significant action to achieve gender equality in Queensland.
Leadership is a realistic and achievable goal for all women and girls. Participating is the first step to leading the way.
Queensland Women’s Week included more than 140 events and activities across the state, offering something for everyone.
Although the week is now over, you can explore stories from Queensland women about how they are getting involved and leading the way.
