2023 International Women's Day Breakfast - Victoria
Date & Time
Wednesday, 8 Mar 2023
- 9:30 am
All Victorian geospatial professionals are invited to join us to celebrate International Women's Day Breakfast Seminar, a fantastic opportunity to connect, share and learn.
The theme for IWD this year is #EmbraceEquity, highlighting that equity isn't just a nice-to-have, it's a must-have, and a focus on gender equity needs to be part of every society's DNA.
Please join us to hear from some speakers followed by the chance to engage in an open Q&A forum with them, all while enjoying a delicious breakfast!
Our MC for the event will once again be the wonderful Nicole Kiely, Jacobs Women’s Network Regional Lead and winner of the 2021 APSEA for Diversity & Inclusion.
Members and non-members are welcome.
