BPW Melbourne Past Events
A selection of our recent events in 2021...
Vision for Victoria - Guest Speaker: Victoria's Public Sector Gender Equality Commissioner, Dr Niki Vincent
In October, BPW Melbourne presented members and guests the opportunity to hear from Victoria's first gender equality commissioner about work to improve women's workplace conditions in the public sector. Dr Vincent is leading the push for gender equality in government organisations by investigating the current state of play and developing strategies to create a fairer workplace for all.
With lockdown persisting in Melbourne, this was part of our FREE online events series that our Club has been running through the pandemic to ensure members and women in the community can continue to connect on important issues and to hear from the women who are leading the global push towards gender equality and equal pay.
Thank you to BPW Victorian State Representative and past BPW Swan Hill President Anne Daniel for moderating our Q&A session.
BPW Australia, National Governance Summit 2021
What a year it's been for us all. A strong contingent of BPW Melbourne members turned out on Sunday, October 17 for the annual BPW Australia AGM and Governance Summit. This followed the cancellation of the National Conference in 2020, due to COVID closures.
With a complementary in-person summit scheduled for April 2022 - in the hope that borders will have reopened - the AGM and Conference allowed our organisation to check off on the business of the national body. It was another opportunity for members to develop meeting skills and observe official voting processes for Resolutions that will guide BPW's policy direction in the future. Our President Emma Manser as well as members Leah Sawell and Tori Foster took up the roles of voting delegates to contribute on behalf of the BPW Melbourne membership.
