The series will span five capital cities from March 3-10 to coincide with International Women's Day on March 8.

In its fifth year, this year's series will be expanded with diversity and inclusion workshops to be held in Perth and Brisbane.

The workshops aim to empower and upskill attendees with knowledge and tools to drive an inclusive workplace culture.

Led by industry experts, the workshops will focus on psychological safety, showing what best practice looks like, as well as providing bystander training with tools for action.

"Our International Women's Day Event Series will celebrate and recognise the incredible women in our industry, and we are really turning it up another notch in 2023," AusIMM CEO Stephen Durkin said.

"As an industry we are at a pivotal moment to build a culture of safety and respect, and our series will empower our attendees to take action and start making a cultural change together."

Keynote speakers for the series are academic, writer and former Iranian hostage Dr Kylie Moore-Gilbert (Perth, March 3); award-winning journalist and gender equity advocate Virginia Haussegger AM (Sydney, March 7); director, Sir Zelman Cowen Centre, Victoria University and advocate for human rights and refugee women Nyadol Nyuon OAM (Melbourne, March 8); author, former federal MP and leadership consultant, Julia Banks (Adelaide, March 9); and co-founder of leading social enterprise Thankyou, Justine Flynn (Brisbane, March 10).
