Women in Events Leading the Way
Today is International Women’s Day and it’s becoming a bit of a tradition at Event Birdie to mark the occasion by showcasing a collection of amazing women who work in the events industry.
This year the theme for IWD is ‘Parity’. Sadly, throughout the world there is still a divide between the education and economic opportunities given to men and women. In many industries, even here in Australia, the salaries and development opportunities are simply not equal.
In order to explore this theme we wanted to feature women who are specifically business owners or working in general manager roles. We wanted to find out what drove them to start their own businesses, how they feel about being a leader and whether they think there is parity between men and women in our industry.
The answers from these fabulous female role models are entertaining, refreshing and encouraging. So go pop the kettle on, grab yourself a treat and enjoy getting to know a little more about these amazing women in the events industry.
