INTERNATIONAL Women’s Day is next week, on 8 March.
Letter from the Desk of the Australian High Commissioner in Honiara – 4 March 2018
“It is a time when the world joins together to mark women’s many accomplishments, but also to consider what more can be done to achieve gender equality.
“This will be my second International Women’s Day in Honiara.
“I will be joining groups from across Solomon Islands Government, community and the private sector to mark the day.
“The Australian High Commission will have a contingent of staff and families joining the parade through Honiara on 8 March.
“I also will join the Solomon Islands Professional Women’s Network as they launch a new directory to profile business women in Solomon Islands.
“Last year for International Women’s Day, I announced that Australia would support the provision of formal leadership and management training for Solomon Islands women working for government and civil society.
“This year, 45 women will graduate next week with a Certificate IV in Leadership and Management, delivered through the Australia-Pacific Technical College.
