Event description

Description

It's carers week! And we want to celebrate(And empathize) with you!

Did you know that those of us who 'juggle' are actually more fulfilled? We're less likely to have regrets later in life, and, we believe, we're actually the most productive people on the planet (if sometimes a little tired!)

You're invited to join Grace Papers Founder, Juggler, and Human Rights Award winner, Prue Gilbert, in conversation with Adam Fennessy, Suzie Riddell and Jodie Haydon about how they've transformed the image of the juggler from bedraggled employee to formidable human being! We guarantee you'll leave feeling fulfilled and wondering why everyone else isn't doing the juggle the way you do!

So come join us for a joy filled morning!

What can you expect?

Powerful stories, tips from men and women, and the chance to be part of something that celebrates what you do and how you do it. We don't judge, we support. Oh, and there will be a delicious brunch with good, strong, Melbourne style coffee.

Who should come?

Working parents, mums groups, dads groups, parents on parental leave (prams and tiny tiny tots welcome), and those who are currently expecting. This is not just about mums! We passionately believe the key to unlocking women's professional potential, is expanding the opportunity to care to men too.

And people leaders are welcome too. Don't miss this unique opportunity to keep in touch with those employees who are currently on parental leave.

Do we get goodie bags?

Well, here's where we thought we'd try something new. We passionately believe in empowering all women, and so are asking that you consider a donation to New Day Box by bringing a shoe box filled with essential items for women in need this Christmas. Imagine a table piled high with shoe boxes filled with the lipsticks, moisturisers and baby balms, toiletries and so on...that you possibly even received at the last lunch you went to...ready to be delivered to someone who really needs It.



Meet our guests!

Suzie Riddell is a mother of 2, Executive Director, Strategy & Projects at Social Ventures Australia, and this year, while heavily pregnant, awarded the AFR Boss Magazine Young Executuive of the Year! Suzie is also a Non-Executive Director of the YWCA NSW and the Observership Program. She holds a Bachelor of Accounting (University Medal, First Class Honours) from the University of Technology, Sydney and a Master of Philosophy (International Relations) from the University of Cambridge.

Suzie is authentic and passionate about empowering women & men to work and care, and has some tips on sharing the care you won't want to miss!

Adam Fennessy is father with young children, and a partner in Ernst & Young's Advisory Practice, with a focus on government and strategy. This follows a 20 year career at State and Federal Government where he was well known and respected for his advocacy around workplace culture, embracing gender equality and flexible work practices. Significantly, Adam has encouraged more men to embrace flexible working, pointing to his own experience of being able to reach deputy secretary level while working part time so he could look after his children. If men go more flexible then that supports their partners and benefits everybody.

Adam was appointed as a member of the inaugural Victorian Male Champions of Change group in 2015, and led change to embed gender equity across DELWP and areas of state government.

Adam is currently serving on the advisory councils of the Monash Sustainable Development Institute and the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute.

Jodie Haydon is a mother of three, and General Manger Human Resources of Viva Energy Australia; accountable for developing and implementing the People Strategy with the CEO and executive team. Jodie is a a champion for gender equality, and recently led the charge to transform the retirement gap for women by introducing a policy that sees Viva Energy employees returning from parental leave in a part time capacity paid the full time super contribution. This is called changing the system.
