Breakfast is all about balance, with the Rotary Club of Tamar Sunrise taking this a step further by using the concept as its topic for International Women’s Day.
The theme for this year is Balance for Better, with a focus on working towards a gender-balanced world – in the boardroom, in government, with media coverage, employee gender-balance, more gender balance in wealth and sports coverage, club president Jo Hart said.
University of Tasmania volcanologist Dr Rebecca Carey, Tasmanian Aboriginal elder Auntie Patsy Cameron and The Examiner editor Courtney Greisbach will share their thoughts on the Balance for Better theme at the breakfast event.
“There is a fantastic lineup of speakers this year, with three inspiring Tasmanian women as our keynote speakers,” Ms Hart said.
“Gender balance enables economies and communities to thrive.”
