This year’s 2019 International Women’s Day Breakfast (IWD) was a terrific success.
Claimed to be the “best ever”!
Over 1,000 men, women and students attended our breakfast, which raised over $30,000 for the selected charities .
We had a dynamic panel discussing strategies to take back to the office “Lets Work Together Celebrating Difference “ as we enjoyed a scrumptious breakfast.
Our panel was : MC comedian Josh Earl, Moderator gender diversity specialist Catherine Fox, Member of Parliament Fiona Patten, Victoria's Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commissioner Kristen Hilton, Women in Science advocate Dr Emma Burrows, Lawyer Josh Bornstein, and past Attorney General Rob Hulls.
This year our generous sponsors were: Clarke & Co Private Accountants, National Australia Bank, WorkSafe, Morgan Stanley and artist Celia Moriarty (women CEO portraits)
The charities this year were: Interplast, Bridge of Hope, Violence Free Families, Preventing Youth Suicide.
We were pleased that we had an increase in men attending our IWD Breakfast, which is really fabulous… As men and women need to work together to achieve better results
Over the past eight years over 8,000 people have attended the event and over $250,000 has been distributed to our chosen charities
