5. Project Showcase

AIIW aims to give Users the opportunity to engage with others and bring their attention to projects dealing with women’s and girls’ issues, through the Project Showcase (“Project Showcase”).

The Project Showcase allows organisations (“Participating Organisations”) to request AIIW to post to the Website details of projects that they oversee that benefit women and girls (“Project”). Users may then navigate the different Projects listed on the Website and, at their own discretion, take action to involve themselves with Projects.

In order to have a Project posted to the Website, Participating Organisations must complete the “Register Project” page on the Website. To complete the “Register Project” page, Participating Organisations must provide AIIW with information in a number of required fields. Registration of a Project cannot proceed unless all required fields are completed. Any and all details that a Participating Organisation submits via the “Register Project” page, be it required or elective information, is known as “Project Material”.

Once a Participating Organisation has submitted Project Material to AIIW, we will then review the Project Material to determine, in our absolute discretion, whether to post the Project Material to the Website. This review process may take up to 21 days, and AIIW is unable to provide an update to Participating Organisations on the status of submitted Project Material. It is the sole responsibility of a Participating Organisation to re-submit Project Material in respect of each Project it wishes to update.

In submitting Project Material, Participating Organisations agree to provide AIIW with true and accurate details and to promptly update Project Material by emailing info@aiiw.org.au.
