The National Women’s Alliances invite you to a day of updates and strategic planning, covering – Wednesday 26 April – AHRC in Sydney
In Australia there are five National Women’s Alliances (the Alliances) who represent over 180 women’s organisations. They bring forward the views, voices and issues of Australian women and, in particular, women from marginalised and disadvantaged groups. The Alliances take the lead in ensuring that the voices of as many women as possible are heard, especially those who in the past have found it difficult to engage in advocacy and decision making.
The role of the alliances
The Five National Women’s Alliances are networks of issues-based and sector-based women’s groups each with a distinct focus and a strong capacity for networking and advocacy activities. Their roles are twofold:
… 1 …
Bring together women's organisations and individuals from across Australia to share information, identify issues that affect them, and identify solutions.
… 2 …
Engage actively with the Australian Government on policy issues as part of a better more informed and representative dialogue between women and government.
