For IWD 2024, this includes celebrating the thousands of women working in the natural gas industry.

In Australia and around the world women are integral to the natural gas supply chain, providing cleaner energy to power homes and businesses, and support the uptake of renewables for a cleaner energy future.

This years theme, is Inspire Inclusion.

“Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that’s diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. Collectively we can all #InspireInclusion.”

“Celebrate women’s achievement. Raise awareness about discrimination. Take action to drive gender parity.

“IWD belongs to everyone, everywhere. Inclusion means all IWD action is valid.”

The natural gas industry strongly champions gender diversity, supporting school-based STEM programs, internships and career opportunities for women.

Brighter has a proud history of support for women in the natural gas industry. In previous years, we have previously partnered with the Superstars of STEM program, supporting women and girls in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) careers, and has also highlighted several amazing women working in and around the industry through our Bright Sparks program.
