IWD 2023

#EmbraceEquity is the theme for IWD 2023, it is also the core of The SHIFT Project’s mission. By fostering emotional and physical wellbeing we empower our women to regain their lives, reconnect with community and achieve their full potential. Being included and belonging, feels good.

We can choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequity. We can choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements.
From challenge comes change, so let’s all put our hands up and choose to challenge.
