Women Who Change the World

MUSE Conference Space, Level 3, 18 Wally's Walk

Thought leaders. Game changers. Rule breakers.

In conjunction with International Women’s Day and Macquarie University’s Master of Social Entrepreneurship, we are delighted to invite you to an event that will inspire women from all walks of life.

This TEDx style lecture series and panel discussion will see female social activists and entrepreneurs take the stage to discuss their journey of becoming change makers, shed light on the power of women to make a macro level impact and share the story of their organisation.

These remarkable women, TEDx speakers and award winners, include:

  • Manal al-Sharif – The woman who dared to drive in Saudi Arabia, author of Daring to Drive and the recipient of the Václav Havel Prize for Creative Dissent at the Oslo Freedom Forum.
  • Rebecca Scott – Co-founder and CEO of STREAT, a social enterprise that provides homeless and disadvantaged youth with a pathway from the street to long-term employment in the hospitality industry and Victoria’s Local Hero, Australian of the Year Awards (2016).
  • Liz Volpe – Director of Zest Possibilities, Co-founder of The League of Extraordinary Women, and Founder of Project Gen Z which has a vision to inspire, educate & activate young people in Cambodia to dare to dream.
  • Katerina Kimmorley – Co-founder and Executive Director of Strategy, Innovation and Research at Pollinate Energy, where she works to distribute solar lights to people living in urban slums in India.

This has been a sell-out event in past years so don’t delay, register now to secure your spot.
