International Women’s Day will be striding confidently onto the global stage on March 8th, 2022. We say “striding confidently” because this year, women around the world have stepped up to an impressive new level to deliver some of the most innovative initiatives we’ve seen for this annual event.
To celebrate their achievements and give you a snapshot of the rather epic things you can get involved in on and around March 8th, we’re going to take you on a tour through our favourite initiatives for this year’s International Women’s Day.
#BreakTheBias for #IWD2022
The #BreakTheBias hashtag represents the theme for International Women’s Day 2022, and it has a simple yet powerful hand signal to go with it. By visiting the International Women’s Day website, you can find plenty of ways to get involved, whether it be as an individual or an organisation. There are ready-made resources you can use to go all-out and plan your own event or keep it simple and create impactful social media posts.

Get the Girls Out!
This free event blends the digital and natural worlds while also connecting women across the globe through a shared adventure. To get involved, all you have to do is download the Goosechase app and enjoy the outdoor-themed missions. Though the point of Get the Girls Out is, as the name suggests, to get women out and into the restorative beauty of nature, there’s also a stack of brilliant prizes to win. So get your friends amped up because this adventure is sure to be a rewarding one.
International Women’s Day Gather
From mother/daughter brunches to speed-networking events, there are some incredible initiatives taking place in Australia for IWD 2022. However, one of our favourites has to be the International Women’s Day Gather event, which is designed to reawaken our old village vibes by bringing people together to share stories and wisdom.
The idea is to create a judgement-free space for all those who identify as women to share experiences of both feeling prejudice and breaking through it. In doing so, we can start to recalibrate our understanding of femininity.
There are so many brilliant initiatives to get involved in for IWD 2022. You can search for industry-specific or location-specific events, and if you can’t find something suitable in your area, there are plenty of virtual options. So, get in touch with the women in your life, get a crew together, and choose your own IWD adventure.
