What happens when an innovator, professional athlete, winemaker and a mortgage broker come together?

Reflection
March 20, 2024

Sounds like a joke doesn’t it but this us about so many pieces of wisdom on how to ‘count her in’.

It was a pleasure to host an evening where we heard from some incredible women at City of Marion IWD ‘Count Her In’ event.

I loved hearing from Ines patritti and how she was given opportunities like her brothers even though it was a different time, she highlighted the importance of education, opportunity and coming back to looking after yourself.

It was a pleasure to facilitate a rich panel conversation on some of the challenges faced by women and solutions including

Hiring professional athletes as their skills are transferable and you want that dedication/mindset – Jordan McMillan

Reframing self promotion to self advocacy – Roann Junio-Hartmann

The importance of flexibilty, connection and supporting one another – we need a new perspective on women and work – Marie Soliman

Thanks to Daniel AdamsCarly Thompson-Barry and team for an enriching night.
