If you can't join us in person, join us online.  We will be livestreaming the event!  Perhaps you'd like to host a IWD Breakfast of your own and watch the speeches from Parliament at your event?

UN Women National Committee Aotearoa New Zealand and the Zonta Club of Wellington invite you and your group to participate in a very special breakfast to celebrate International Women’s Day, Thursday, 8 March 2018, by participating in a free live streaming event.
The event itself will be held at Parliament, hosted by the Minister for Women, the Honourable Julie-Anne Genter.  The keynote speakers will be the Governor General, the Right Honourable Her Excellency Dame Patsy Reddy, and the Right Honourable Helen Clark, formerly Administrator of the United Nations Fund for Development and Prime Minister of New Zealand, in a conversation with Dr Gill Greer, Chief Executive of the National Council for Women.
Live streaming will commence from 7-9am New Zealand time.  It will be an opportunity for women’s groups and schools around New Zealand and in the Pacific to participate in the event, wherever they may be.
Women’s groups may wish to hold their own International Women’s Day breakfast at the same time, and live stream the parliamentary event, while schools may wish to show the broadcast later, to coincide with school schedules.
We would appreciate it if groups and schools would indicate their interest in participating in the live streaming of this celebratory event by Thursday, 18 February 2018, so that we can advise them of the technical details of how to access the live stream, and provide other information about the event.
