International Women's Day 2024

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

This year, RMIT Vietnam celebrates Women's Day 2024 under the UN Women’s theme Count Her In: Invest in Women. Accelerate Progress, which examines the pathways to greater economic inclusion for women and girls everywhere.

Our events champion the idea that women can attain anything, achieve success, and challenge societal stereotypes through the pillars of Learn: Empowering Through Education, Earn: Financial Independence, and Lead: Breaking Stereotypes and Shaping the Future

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