This year’s theme, Each for Equal, challenges everyone to actively choose to fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women’s achievements.
Guests at the event heard from Sheena Vinden, Senior Partner at Atkinson Vinden Lawyers, Trish Bramble, General Manager of the Manly Warringah Women’s Resource Centre and Dr Elizabeth Shoesmith, Founder and CEO of The Inclusive Organisation Group.
All the speakers challenged guests to individually champion greater equality for women in the workplace and in our community, whilst giving a timely reminder that we still have a long way to go.
Women continue to face active bias in the workplace and, whilst progress is being made, there is still a struggle to achieve financial equality and attain senior leadership roles. We all have a role to play to ensure this is addressed.
