By  |  0 Comments

The ‘bold’ women of Port Phillip will be sharing their diverse life experiences at the always popular International Women’s Day function at St Kilda Town Hall, Thursday 2 March.

Hosted by the City of Port Phillip with the theme Be Bold for Change, the free community event will take the format of an informal cocktail function and lively Q&A panel session.

Port Phillip Council Mayor Bernadene Voss has announced an exciting line-up of panel speakers set to engage and entertain the audience with their perspectives on the issues that matter.

“Visibility and awareness help drive positive change for women and we’re honoured this year to have on our panel some truly bold women who are recognised champions for progress,” Cr Voss said.

“High profile author and columnist Clementine Ford, inspiring advocate for transgender teenagers Georgie Stone, and accomplished CEO of Port Phillip Housing Association Haleh Homaei will lead a provocative discussion that I’m sure will resonate with us all.”

“It will be a rare chance to come together to celebrate the social, economic and cultural achievements of all women in a welcoming, local atmosphere.”

The audience are encouraged to engage in the Q&A panel session and enjoy refreshments and more informal discussions afterwards.

City of Port Phillip Bernadene Voss, Deputy Mayor Katherine Copsey, and Canal Ward Councillor Louise Crawford will be attending along with an expected audience of more than 200, as the annual celebration goes from strength to strength.

Tickets to the event were in high demand throughout February and have sold out. Go to https://www.internationalwomensday.com/ for more information about International Women’s Day 2017, which is 8 March.
