19 Oct 2012 - 11:31 by michelle.foster

This years international Women's Day grants provide an opportunity for not for profit groups to apply for small grants of £250 to £500 to host events that tackle the under representation of women in the arts, business, sport, science and the environment and promote work with different groups of women in Manchester.

Not-for-profit, voluntary and community groups can apply for grants of £250 to £500 to host International Women's Day events across the city during March 2013.

Manchester's theme for IWD 2013 is women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) an area where women are massively under represented, only 9.1% of women work in STEM in the private sector in the UK.

This years grant programme is an opportunity to recognise other areas where women are under represented and for organisations to hold innovative events to celebrate International Women's Day across the city.
