The 2024 theme for International Women's Day is 'Inspire Inclusion' and our inspiring guest speaker is Trudy McGowan OAM. We are very fortunate to have Ms McGowan who has served as an Australian Diplomat since 2005 as this year's guest. 

In recognition of her exceptional work in supporting Australians abroad through consular assistance, including the successful recovery of Australians from hostage and arbitrary detention situations, Ms McGowan was awarded an OAM (Order of Australia Medal) in June 2023. She also received an Australian Operational Service Medal (Civilian) for her involvement in the evacuation of Australians from Kabul in 2021.

Ms McGowan has specialized in various areas within the Consular Affairs Division, where she has handled complex and high-profile cases, crisis response, and consular and business continuity planning.

As in previous years there will be a swag of raffle prizes and a lucky door prize. EFTPOS or cash will available to purchase raffle tickets. This year we are supporting our guest speaker's charity of choice, the UN Women's Second Chance Education program.

The start time is 7.00am for 7.15am and will conclude by 8.30am.
