Working together to achieve goals
SI Australia collaborates with a number of partners in the promotion of social justice.
Equality Rights Alliance
SI Australia is proud to be a member of the largest women's advocacy network in Australia.
National Representative, Kath Gribble, IPNR Ralda Forzin, Catherine Evans, Margaret Smith, Di Lockwood and Belinda Barnett attend national ERA meetings, while SI members across Australia connect with local ERA groups.
Current advocacy projects include:
National Gender Equality Plan
Young Women's Advisory Group (YWAG)
Minding the GAPP (Gender Aware Policies & Processes)
National Council of Women
SI Australia works with the National Council of Women to raise awareness of the rights of women and girls, and to advocate on their behalf to improve equity in opportunity and access.
Some Clubs are affiliated with their local (State & Territory) NCWA Council. However, all women are urged to join their local NCWA to support their activities in your area.
We have recently joined S4W - an alliance of women's organisations united in the belief that economic wellbeing and financial security are essential for women and will enable women of all ages to have an equal place in society.

Soroptimist International Clubs across Australia advocate for those who are in need of secure and affordable housing.
SI Australia commends the work of National Shelter in promoting public awareness and informing government policy development.
