International Women’s Day Forum #ChooseToChallenge (SOLD OUT)

This event is sold out, but click 'Register online' to go on the waitlist. 

Be part of City of Ryde’s International Women’s Day #ChooseToChallenge Forum.

A challenged world is an alert world.

Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day.

We can choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequity. We can choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements.

Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.

From challenge comes change, so let’s all choose to challenge.

Enjoy guest speakers, live performances, hear stories, interact and come together to celebrate the achievements of women in Ryde, and join us for a complimentary lunch.
