International Women’s Day

SI South Perth members attended the UN Women IWD Breakfast at PCEC and were delighted to host eight female students from our local schools.

The guest speakers were Elizabeth Gaines (CEO Fortescue Metal Group) and Zara Fisher (Vice President, HSE Iron Ore, Rio Tinto) in a panel discussion with Karla Grant (Presenter, Journalist and Executive Producer of Current Affairs, NITV and SBS). The speakers shared their experiences and views on women in leadership and gender equality in the workplace.

It was a great morning with a great theme – More Powerful Together – recognising it takes all of us, working in collaboration, to break down stereotypes and gendered roles to create a world women and girls have equal rights and opportunities.
