Women in Front Networking Lunch

The 2017 Women in Front Networking Lunch is the premier networking event in the North. Dr Susan Carland 1.jpg

Author & Social Commentator Dr Susan Carland attracted a record crowd to this year’s Women in Front Networking Lunch.

An audience of 300 people gathered at Melrose Reception & Convention Centre in Tullamarine to hear from Dr Carland, who is the author of the recently published Fighting Hislam.

In her book, Dr Carland shares the stories of Muslim women who are making a stand for their sex, while holding fast to their faith.

The audience, made up of business and community leaders listened to Susan's inspiring and informed views on leadership, equality and diversity.

Susan has a PhD from Monash University School of Social Sciences and her teaching and research expertise are in gender, sociology, contemporary Australia and the modern Muslim experience. 

On leadership and diversity, Susan spoke of how change can occur within workplaces and communities, often just by "showing up". By this, Susan means that by staying true to your identity and acting courageously to effect change, we can have a lasting positive impact on our communities. 

The Event was proudly sponsored by Telstra Business Centre Essendon. Speaking on behalf of the event sponsor, Jo Camilleri commented on the event’s success and their opportunity to take part. "It was such a great event and something we are very proud to be part of". 

By bringing together a diverse range of professionals from across the region, the lunch provided excellent networking and professional development opportunities for our thriving business representatives.

The annual event was part of the Small Business Festival's Women in Business week that highlights the significant role of women in our business community.

The Women in Front Networking Lunch will be held again in August 2018. For partnership opportunities which provide your business with significant promotional opportunities, contact Kelly Court on 9205 2200.
