We know smart women like you plan ahead so get ready to celebrate the most important day of the year with us – International Women’s Day.
International Women’s Day has become a pillar event on the Business Chicks calendar, and tickets sell out quickly.
In 2018, our powerful speakers inspired attendees to forge ahead for gender equality. Tracey Spicer spoke about the #Metoo movement in Australia, and Amna Karra-Hassan motivated and united friends and colleagues to think, act and be more outspoken. In 2019, we’re bringing together another powerful lineup including Susan Alberti AC, Marita Cheng and JoAnna Ferrari.
You can also help us support The Brotherhood of St Laurence’s Stepping Stones Program on the day too— $10 from every ticket will be donated to Stepping Stones and there will also be a raffle on the day to take part in.
Don’t miss out on celebrating the most important day of the year surrounded by the incredible women in the Business Chicks community.
Susan Alberti AC has always forged her own path. Together with her late husband, Susan founded and managed a very successful commercial building business that’s allowed her to work tirelessly as a philanthropist for causes very close to her throughout her life. She’s risen above devastating personal tragedy to life a life full of meaning and was instrumental in the creation of the AFLW League, creating a pathway for women to play the game she’s always loved.
Marita Cheng is one impressive young woman. She is a technology entrepreneur and women in technology advocate, having founded aubot, which makes a telepresence robot, Teleport, enabling kids with cancer in hospital to attend school, people with a disability to attend work and to monitor and socialise with elderly people. She also founded Robogirls Global, which has now taught over 70,000 girls in 11 countries about robotics.
JoAnna Ferrari has a curious mind. She’s an expert at transition and will inspire you to think differently. She went from high powered executive living the life, to coming out, changing gender and crashing with 79 cents in the bank. Her journey almost destroyed her and at first glance, it may seem that her life is very different, but ultimately, it’s a reminder of what’s really possible.
