International women's day 2018
International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The theme for International Women's Day 2018 is “Press for Progress!".
This Signature Breakfast event is open to BNCC members (and their guests), reciprocal members*, schools^ and non-members. Men and women are welcome to attend.
Join us this year as we welcome Madeline Price who will be speaking about her experiences founding the One Woman Project, the work that they do and how this links with International Women’s Day, the major issues facing women globally and the progress they have seen/still have yet to see in order to reach equality.
Madeline Price is the National Director and Founder of the One Woman Project, one of Australia’s fastest-growing, youth-led, non-for-profit organisations dedicated to education about and advocacy promoting global gender equality.
Founded in 2013, the One Woman Project consists of a team of 32 volunteers across three states (Queensland, South Australia and Victoria), a National Team and two international bases (India and Tanzania) who provide quality educational seminars to young people, biannual conferences/festivals, public seminars, engagement events and state-wide campaigns, covering various topics of global gender inequality.
For her work with the One Woman Project, she was lucky enough to be nominated and shortlisted as one of five finalists for the 2016 Young People’s Human Rights Medal awarded by the Human Rights Commission, shortlisted as one of four finalists for the 2015 Queensland Young Australian of the Year Award, awarded the triple J Annual's 2015 25 Under 25 award, and present a talk for TEDxUQ on workplace gender certification.
