Douglas Partners was a proud bronze sponsor at the 2021 International Women’s Day Illawarra luncheon last Friday 21 May. It was a long-awaited celebration as the 2020 event was postponed, but certainly worth the wait.
Almost 1000 people gathered to recognise the contribution and issues still faced by women today, and to celebrate some significant achievements. The theme was, #ChooseToChallenge, a powerful reminder that we can all choose to challenge, call out inequality and collectively help create an inclusive world.
Australian of the Year, Grace Tame and Detective Superintendent, Deb Wallace ‘The Gangbuster’, inspired the crowd with their own messages of courage and influence, really bringing to life this year’s theme. Memorable entertainment was also provided by Effie from Acropolis Now.
