Celebrating the achievements of women will be a top priority across ACU on March 8 when we join in the global festivities marking International Women’s Day.
International Women’s Day is a global event highlighting the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call on the masses to help forge a more inclusive, gender equal world.
Plans for International Women’s Day celebrations at ACU are gearing up, with breakfast and reception events planned across five of our campuses on Wednesday 8 March.
Some of ACU’s most senior female staff will host these events and notable alumni guest speakers will share their stories on how they are making a difference in their fields.
The group of inspiring speakers will include children’s author Jodi Toering, co-founder and director of Indigenous creative agency ‘Gilimbaa’ Amanda Lear, co-founder and owner of The Women’s Collective Georgia King, Olympian and Paralympian Milly Tapper, and CEO and founder of Gennarosity Abroad Genna Radnan.
