The Tasmanian Liberal Government is committed to creating a more inclusive Tasmania that empowers and enables women and girls to fully participate in our economic, social, political and community life.

Applications are now open for the International Women’s Day Small Grants Program 2021.

International Women’s Day, held on 8 March each year, is an opportunity to celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of women, past present and future.

The theme for International Women’s Day in 2021 is #ChooseToChallenge. A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day, including:

  • We can choose to challenge and call out gender bias, discrimination and stereotyping.
  • We can choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can create an inclusive and more gender-equal world.

The International Women’s Day Small Grants Program provides grants of up to $300 to organisations to support and build International Women’s Day events across Tasmania.

For further information about the International Women’s Day Small Grants Program, please contact the Department of Communities Tasmania on 1800 204 224 or email csrgrants@communities.tas.gov.au

Applications close 11 January 2021.
