Australians Investing in Women Supports YES

Australian’s Investing in Women (AIIW) is a leading not-for-profit organisation that advocates for, promotes, and facilitates gender-wise philanthropy. Building on progress towards gender equity AIIW takes an evidence-based approach and works with philanthropic, corporate and community leaders to strengthen society by catalysing investing in women and girls.

In 2023 the Australian Federal government will hold a national referendum to determine whether Australians support changing to the Constitution to enshrine an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s Voice to Parliament.

AIIW is committed to a more equal world for all Australians. We’ve listened to indigenous leaders and politicians, and First Nation’s women voices united in the Wiyi Yani U Thagani report, led by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner, June Oscar AO. We support the commitment and call to action made in Uluru Statement from the Heart, the results of a decade-long First Nation’s community movement led by Prof Megan Davis, Pat Anderson AO, and Noel Pearson.

We believe that a YES vote in ‘The Voice’ referendum supports a pathway to a fairer future and better outcomes for First Nation’s men, women, and children.

We encourage all Australians to engage with the organisations and agencies leading this historical campaign; to reflect on their position and values, and on what kind of nation and enduring history we wish to co-create.

Join us – vote yes, and if you can, please donate to the Yes campaign via
