Join us for an empowering event series celebrating the role women play in shaping our communities and our lives. Hosted by the Perth Integrated Events team, the 4-session forum brings together inspirational speakers that share practical skills and tools for other women to succeed and thrive. “Essentials for Women” is proudly supporting The Ladybird Foundation in its efforts to raise funds for breast and gynecologic cancer research in WA.

In an era of social progress and striving for equality, it is essential that we equip women in our community with the necessary skills and techniques to succeed. Without such empowerment, the persistent disparity and imbalance will continue to affect even those within the same gender.
