Tara Moss on ‘Labels, Leadership and Why We Need More Women’s Voices’

Bicentennial Park, NSW

The Coleman Greig Women in Business Forum

In March we celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD), and what better way to recognise the achievements of women than to join us at the first major Women in Business lunch for 2018.

‘Press for Progress’ is this year’s IWD theme – an opportunity to reflect on progress, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women.

Our internationally acclaimed keynote speaker Tara Moss will share her insights on women’s representation in media, fiction, politics and public life – addressing the topic of ‘Labels, Leadership and Why We Need More Women’s Voices’.

We will also be showcasing the achievements of Western Sydney women, proudly hosting the Western Sydney University’s Women of the West Awards and announcing the winners at our lunch.

Fundraising on the day will support The Sanctuary – The Hills Women’s Shelter, a NFP organisation providing crisis shelter for women and their children who are fleeing domestic violence.
