We knew it would be great. It was better than great.
“The Power of Her” Women in Leadership Symposium brought together an inspiring group of leaders to share knowledge, provide fresh perspectives and motivate.
Thought leaders, trail-blazers and world-class athletes shared captivating stories and powerful messages about gender equality throughout the day. FIFA Secretary General Madame Fatma Samoura told us don’t take no for an answer. 2021 Young South Australian of the Year Layan Saadeh explained the value of sport in building a sense of community. Sam Bloom talked about the importance of having a goal.
The timing of the symposium felt just right given the success of the recent Australian Diamonds and the Matilda’s in the FIFA Women’s World Cup. We left with a great buzz knowing the role we can play in continuing societal change, and the importance of being brave, finding your voice and amplifying it.
Thanks to the Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing for hosting a terrific event.
