Opportunity Women4Women Conference
Sat. 13 May 2017, 9:00 am – 3:00 pm AWST
Whether you're from the suburbs of Perth or the island of Sumba, Indonesia, the fact remains the same - every person has the right to reach their full potential. And whilst talent is universal, opportunity is not.
In Australia, it's easy to take good health, education and a regular income for granted, but all around the world, there are women still facing these challenges without access to these basic necessities.
But the world is changing and you can be a part of that change.
We invite you to join us for the inaugural Opportunity Women4Women conference. We want to celebrate women and men from all walks of life, and acknowledge that everyone has the right to exercise choice, experience social and economic empowerment, and pursue their dreams.
Come and hear from three outstanding local female leaders and be inspired, empowered and even challenged to build a legacy worth leaving behind.
All profits from the event go towards empowering women through the work of Opportunity International Australia. By giving a small loan, a mother can start a business, put food on the table for her family, send her children to school and work her way out of poverty. It is called a hand up and not a hand out. With 98% of all loans being repaid and recycled, the impact is ongoing.
Everyone is welcome (men included!!)
