SCONE RECEIVES A SHARE OF GRANTS FOR NSW WOMEN’S WEEK EVENTS

AN International Women’s Day Breakfast in Scone is among 45 events that will promote and support women’s education, employment and wellbeing during the upcoming NSW Women’s Week.


Member for Upper Hunter Dave Layzell said events like the Scone Chamber of Commerce breakfast help communities connect and celebrate the incredible contributions of women.

“The NSW Nationals and Liberals in Government are bringing women together to celebrate and inspire each other across the Upper Hunter electorate and the state.
Events like Scone’s International Women’s Day gathering on 7 March will deliver a wide range of practical supports that will benefit women right across our fabulous Upper Hunter and NSW,” Mr Layzell said.

Minister for Women Bronnie Taylor said funding has been doubled this year to give as many women as possible the opportunity to get involved in NSW Women’s Week.


“We are celebrating women from all walks of life and I’m absolutely delighted that the schedule of events reflects the creativity and diversity of women across the Upper Hunter electorate and regional NSW,” Mrs Taylor said.


NSW Women’s Week runs from March 6 to March 12 and promotes gender equality while celebrating the social and cultural achievements of women.


The NSW Women’s Week Grants Program provided grants of $3,000 to $5,000 for events that support at least one of the key priorities of the NSW Women’s Strategy 2023-2026. These include improving women’s economic opportunities, health and wellbeing, and participation in community.
