we are excited to again be hosting our international women’s day breakfast with live stream from the adelaide iwd event – which is the largest in australia
Join us for a great morning celebrating International Women’s Day!
The Adelaide breakfast is the largest event celebrating IWD in Australia and it is the largest annual women’s event in the Adelaide calendar. This event was established in Adelaide in 1993 and has tremendous support from the Adelaide community attracting 2,500 guests in 2019 and raising $60,000, which was donated to UN Women Australia. The Adelaide event is dhosted by Senator the Hon Penny Wong with Guest speaker Elizabeth Broderick.
As Australia’s longest serving Sex Discrimination Commissioner (2007-2015), Elizabeth worked tirelessly to break down structural and social barriers faced by women and men, and to promote gender equality. Her review into the treatment of women in the Australian Defence Force led to sweeping cultural reforms.
She established and convenes the globally recognised ‘Male Champions of Change’ strategy, enlisting a ‘who’s who’ of powerful male leaders to tackle workplace gender inequality. She is a powerful and influential voice in the struggle for gender equality, enlisting both women and men as agents of change. In 2017 Elizabeth was appointed by the United Nations in Geneva as a Special Mandate Holder and Independent Expert on discrimination against Women.
She is a member of the Council for the Order of Australia and in 2016 Elizabeth was appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia and was named 2016 NSW Australian of the Year.
