Join BWA National Director, Lyn Hawkins with CARE Australia‘s panel for an interactive conversation about the powerful ‘Her Circle’ campaign which aims to shine a spotlight on one truly amazing fact: when a woman escapes poverty, she brings four others in her circle with her — now that’s a powerful multiplier.
We’ve seen it time and time again. When a woman is healthy and educated, her family will be too. When she earns an income, she invests it in the health and education of her children, family and community. And when a woman speaks, she speaks up for others too.
To amplify the message of the 2023 International Women’s Day #EmbraceEquity, which falls on 8th March, we’re hoping you can match her impact by bringing together your circle, team or network to help support women to defeat poverty and amplify the power of women.
This online roundtable and Q&A forum will appeal to every business and community leader, manager, executive and entrepreneur keen to be a champion of change.
