International Women’s Day 2023: Today and everyday we celebrate our wāhine! Our mothers, kuia, sisters, aunties, partners, and leaders.
The theme for International Women’s Day is to embrace equity. In 2023, we hope to see meaningful change in gender pay gaps & representation in leadership. We tautoko the efforts of Mind The Gap NZ in closing the gender pay gap and Manatū Wāhine with their mahi to improve outcomes for women in Aotearoa.
