International Women's Day 2023

RMIT proudly supports International Women’s Day (IWD), which is globally celebrated on 8 March each year.

This year’s UN Women’s theme, Cracking the Code: Innovation for a gender-equal future, highlights the role that innovative ideas, inclusive technologies, and accessible education can play in combatting the discrimination and marginalisation of women across the globe. 

Explore events and activities on campus and online on the day and learn how you can get involved. 


SDG Research Seminar Series

RMIT Office for Research & Innovation will organise the SDS Research Seminar Series on International Women's Day, 8 March 2023. The event is open to RMIT staff and students. 

This is an opportunity for our RMIT community to engage in research topics related to the implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in Vietnam and what we as an RMIT community are doing to contribute. Attending the seminar there will be distinguished guests from the Vietnam Women’s Academy.

RMIT Vietnam is proud to have strong women in leadership positions. 

𝗡𝗴𝗵𝗲 & 𝗦𝗵𝗮𝗿𝗲, produced by RMIT Vietnam, is a talk-show series pairing an identified leader with an RMIT student to connect informally over a quintessential Vietnamese activity while chatting about leadership. ‘Nghe’ is a Vietnamese word, that means listening. This reflects the concept of a conversation between two leaders unfolding in each episode.
