Event description
This IWD join us to support the devastated communities and meet our game changing female leaders doing impactful things for climate change.

About this Event

The bushfires and droughts that have been ravishing Australia have brought communities together as a positive. This International Women’s Day we have adapted the theme “Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change”#EachforEqual. We at the Digital Women’s Network are thrilled to share with you our game changing female leaders who are doing impactful things for our devastated communities.

Our speakers will also provide us all with take away key tips for changes we can bring to our lives to help the environment now and for future generations.

Whilst enjoying a long lunch at the hands of the wonderful chef Guy Grossi, upstairs at Grossi Florentino’s you will have the opportunity to learn from our speakers how an innovative digital approach is supporting the bushfire recovery across Australia. The afternoon will end with a healthy discussion on how we can individually create a collective impact to help ourselves and the environment. How we can make changes to ensure that we build smart systems for the future.

We will be raising funds from the day to support the communities and in the regeneration of forests throughout Australia with the help of Greenfleet.

Now more than ever it is time to work together on an equal footing to drive change, as we know an equal world is an enabled world!
