To celebrate International Women’s Day 2019, we’ve partnered with UN Women NZ to showcase young kiwi female entrepreneurs who are making a difference and empowering other women.

UN Women’s 2019 IWD theme, ‘THINK EQUAL. BUILD SMART. INNOVATE FOR CHANGE’ focusses on innovative ways in which gender equality and the empowerment of women can be advanced, particularly in the areas of social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure.

As a female-founded and company centered on women’s empowerment, this partnership and showcasing amazing women is an affirmation to Trilogy’s ongoing commitment to #WomenSupportingWomen.

Follow @unwomennz on Instagram this month for a daily feature release on each of the contributors in the trailer video. A series of events supporting UN Women NZ’s efforts around the country can also be viewed here
