Last Thursday, 8 March 2018, at the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence in Redfern, Murawin hosted our first International Women's Day Breakfast and Networking event and it can only be described as an absolute success! With over 80 women attending, from all different personal and work backgrounds, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, it was a wonderful morning of sharing and celebrating in the successes of women.
Dr. Lyn Riley and Ms. Hazel Vale, our guest speakers, shared with us their beautiful and inspiring stories, and were truly in line with this year's NAIDOC Theme, 'Because of Her, We Can'. We were also very excited to have the Honourable Linda Burney, MP, join us. The atmosphere in the room could only be described as electric, and we want to sincerely thank everyone who came and helped make it the fantastic morning it was. We plan to make our IWD Breakfast an annual event!
