Everything you need to find engaging local or virtual keynote speakers for your International Women’s Day 2021 event.

The history of International Women’s Day in Australia goes back to a 1928 demonstration in Sydney, growing to annual marches all over the country by 1931. International Women’s Day celebrates the achievements of the women’s rights movements and call for further steps towards gender equality and fair treatment of women.

IWD 2021 falls on Monday March 8, and the theme for IWD 2021 is #ChooseToChallenge. This theme calls for all members of society to call out gender bias and inequality while celebrating the achievements of girls and women both on social media and in everyday life.

Given the last 12 months being the toughest for business, leaders and worker morale in recent memory, it’s no surprise that motivational, inspirational, business and leaderships speakers are currently in high demand.
