International Women's Day

International Women’s Day Celebration

The Australian Government recognises the importance of empowering women and girls, so that communities can reach their full potential. We believe this brings peace and prosperity for our region.

Consul-General Nancy Gordon welcomed Dr Megan Clark, Chief Executive of Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), and Chengdu Vice Mayor Ms Tian Rong, at a luncheon on 12 March. The lunch was attended by over 100 female guests from government, business and the community.

This luncheon gave us the opportunity to celebrate International Women’s Day and to listen to the experiences of two female leaders – Dr Clark from Australia and Vice Mayor Tian from Chengdu.
