Growing Female Talent Regionally

Mark 31st August for NAWO's very first live streamed Quick Bite event!

Get set for a truly national NAWO event!

The local slogan says ‘great things grow in Shepparton’ and we are incredibly excited to be planting the NAWO seed in this beautiful part of the Goulburn Valley on Thursday the 31st of August when we discuss ‘Growing female talent regionally’ with an inspiring lineup of guest speakers, panellists and conversations.

Why are we so excited?

Because this is NAWO’s first event (hopefully of many) in the Goulburn Valley.

It will also be NAWO’s FIRST NATIONAL LIVESTREAM. That’s right! NAWO’s entire network will be able to watch the event LIVE and FREE by logging in on their favourite device from anywhere in Australia!

Celebrate the achievements of regional women in non-traditional roles and help us to dig deep and unearth new discussions around

  • the challenges and opportunities in attracting, retaining and developing female talent in regional locations
  • finding the personal courage and confidence to grow your career
  • building your network 

REGISTER NOW to attend in person in sunny Shepparton or obtain login details for the Livestream (with unlimited Livestream spaces, there is no excuse for missing this event).

Or why not host your very own NAWO LIVESTREAM event? Book a meeting room at your workplace and arrange for a group of colleagues to view with you. We will provide support for our member companies to broadcast the Livestream in the workplace and facilitate internal networking and conversation starters!

NAWO members will also be able to register to access recordings of the Livestream after the event.

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS (please note change of speaker):

  • Rebecca Woolstencroft CEO, MB+M Chartered Accountants | Board Chair, GV Health:
    ‘Should I stay or should I go? A personal reflection on my regional career’
  • Lesley Hart Director, Dawes & Vary Riordan Lawyers, Board Member of Committee 4 Greater Shepparton
  • Sam Birrell CEO, Committee 4 Greater Shepparton

    Due to the very sad passing of Fiona Richardson MP, Suzanna Sheed, advertised as the opening speaker for this event, will be unable to participate because she will be attending the State Memorial Service in Melbourne. We are very grateful to Lesley Hart and Sam Birrell for stepping in at very short notice to provide the opening keynote address.

The Australian Government, in partnership with NAWO, is providing funding for a series of livestreamed events as part of NAWO’s Regional Delivery Program to boost access for regional women and organisations. This funding is part of the Government’s Women’s Leadership and Development Strategy, administered through the Office for Women, which is focused on improving gender equality and providing support for women’s economic empowerment, safety and leadership. We anticipate this partnership will enable hundreds (if not thousands) of regional women to participate in operational leadership development opportunities, and regional organisations to further their gender diversity targets.
