What’s it all about?

To celebrate International Women’s Day, Redhead Digital Marketing is hosting a morning networking breakfast, followed by an exciting panel discussion featuring three inspiring members of the Perth community – leaders, role models and mentors – who in their own way are all helping to create a more equal society.

Come along to our event as we reflect on how women and men from diverse backgrounds can all create change and work together towards achieving gender equity from the workplace to the boardroom.

With this year’s theme as #EachForEqual, we recognise each one of us has the power to shape a gender equal world. We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women’s achievements.

Collectively, each one of us can help create a gender equal world.

To celebrate and show your support for such an important day, we’d love you to join us.  Regardless of gender or gender identity, everyone is welcome to celebrate the progress women have made towards equality and to remember how much further we still have to go.

This is also a great opportunity to meet new people and network with like-minded people.

This is a not-for-profit event with proceeds being donated to Dress for Success Perth.

Justine Colyer:

Justine has more than 30 years’ experience in the public, private and non-profit sectors in Australia, the UK and Europe, doing everything from running a pub to a prison. She is currently the CEO of Rise and has worked hard to support and promote the needs and rights of some of the most marginalised and vulnerable people in our community. She is a strong advocate for gender equality and has been a featured speaker at several high-profile events, particularly in the area of leadership and creating a culture that encourages gender equity.

Julian Pace:

Julian Pace, Founder of Happiness Co and an effective public speaker lost his father, cousin and best friend to suicide. He made a decision to turn his pain into purpose and founded Happiness Co in 2017, a social enterprise focused on reducing the impact of unhappiness, depression and anxiety in the community. As part of this journey he also created the program ‘Man Enough’, which encourages men to open up, seek support and work on their self-development. To be ‘Man Enough’ is to be respectful, informed and loud about the importance of gender equality in our everyday life.

Tillie Prowse:

Tillie has more than 30 years’ experience working in the public and community service sector in Western Australia and the United Kingdom. She runs a successful consultancy that works collaboratively with organisations and diverse communities to create innovative solutions to a range of issues including strategies to positively impact gender equity across government and community service sectors. Prior to establishing her consultancy business, Tillie was CEO of the NGO Patricia Giles Centre, a family and domestic violence organisation. In this role, she developed a deeper understanding of gender inequality and is passionate about influencing discussions on achieving gender equity.

Emily Wilding:

Emily is a youth worker and a young person with experience across the community sector, working as a peer educator, a lived experience advisor, a domestic violence support worker, and most recently coordinating a drop-in service for young people aged 12-17 in the outer suburb of Stratton. Emily is passionate about creating a level playing field and equal opportunity for people of any and all genders; this passion has been channelled into a number of projects across multiple organisations to increase inclusivity and reduce structural barriers for LGBTQIA+ people.

Thanks to all of our generous supporters.
