DESCRIPTION

INVINCIBLE YOUNG WOMEN OF ADVERSITY


My name is Camille and I am currently organising the second of a series of vitally important, not for profit landmark events. The first event will be the very first of its kind in Canberra taking place on 10 December 2017. This event sold out to the tune of 150 tickets in just over three weeks.


THIS EVENT IS IMPORTANT, girl.



The second event is entitled INVINCIBLE WOMEN OF ADVERSITY and will encompass women of all ages, circumstances and backgrounds


This is an event for the 'every girl'.


The idea behind this event was born of numerous conversations I had held with a diverse collection of young women in Canberra. These women are young academics, entrepreneurs, social enterprise pioneers, fierce community advocates, designers, change makers and visionaries. These women know that success, knowledge and wisdom, whilst hard won, is not only for the 'confident girls' or the ‘nice girls’ who always behave well and conform to societal behavioral norms. They know that sometimes, it takes a little more than the old 'kill em with kindness' routine to get it all done.

This event is a diverse networking, public speaking and empowerment opportunity for those women of adverse backgrounds determined to be heard and for those who could benefit from listening. The event will draw together women from vastly different social and cultural backgrounds whom share the common experience of having faced an adverse life experience - it will celebrate whatever it is that adversity means to them.

The event will be a celebration of the achievements of women who have lived a ‘big life’. Whether it be through loss, disease, disability, Domestic Violence, sexual abuse or trauma. Those who have overcome challenging childhoods or misfit parents. Those women who have overcome mental illness and addiction and gone on to obliterate the limits set by the stigma attached to their life experience.

The event will celebrate those women building brands and businesses. Women who are achieving what were considered 'unattainable' goals whilst living with a spectrum disorder or intellectual difficulty. Those women conquering cultural and language barriers, who speak boldly on what it means to be 'one of the many shades of brown and beyond' in what is still very much a white professional world.

The event will celebrate the bloggers, community activists, designers, social entrepreneurs, public servants, business owners, medical professionals, refugees, mothers and those young women spearheading local religious and cultural empowerment movements. It will celebrate those women who have been bullied, or are determined to overcome mental health issues, eating disorders or self-esteem issues.

The event will support and give rise to those women who might not speak as boldly as others, but whom might benefit from exposure to their strength and presence. It will serve those who wish to simply sit in and listen or contribute in their own individual way.

The event will bring together Canberra’s fierce collective of influencers, creatives, professionals and entrepreneurs.

The social media reach generated by this event is anticipated to be well in excess of 200k people, given the vast social media followings of the events confirmed local contributors.

The potential benefit that the women of Canberra stand to gain from an event of this nature is immeasurable. For this reason, I would like to request your valuable assistance in helping to bring the second INVINCIBLE event to life.

If you feel that you or someone you know has something to offer an event such as this, then I want you to share this event and purchase a ticket.
