International Women’s Day in Goulburn: Global, Urban and Rural Partnerships.

The United Nations Information Centre Canberra, the International Organization for Migration and the Goulburn Multicultural Centre came together on Friday, 9 March to celebrate International Women’s Day which consisted of a Zumba class, presentations followed by a light lunch and refreshments.

IOM opened the presentations with a short video and explanation on International Women’s Day and the Together Campaign.

The theme this year was “Time Is Now: Rural and urban activists transforming women’s lives” which was a perfect fit for Canberra based Multicultural Community Activist Ms Diana Abdel-Rahman OAM, the keynote speaker whose address was appreciated by the many rural migrant women of Goulburn attending.

The Manager of the Goulburn Multicultural Centre, Ms Heni Hardi concluded the presentation by thanking UNIC and IOM for their partnership.
