News Bizwear Backs 2019 WomenWise Event
2 December 2019
At Bizwear, we are big believers in gender diversity and fostering gender equality in the workplace. For the second time, we were delighted to co-sponsor last month’s WomenWise conference, hosted by our client Flight Centre Travel Group (FCTG).
More than 480 Flight Centre women from around Australia flew to Brisbane for a day of networking and inspirational speakers.
This year’s theme focused on “the inspirational women who support you”. The speaker line up included cancer advocate and Love Your Sister founder, Samuel Johnson, former Flightie executive and founder of Goddess in the Boardroom, Rachel O’Brien, and ultra-marathon runner, Turia Pitt.
The event offers women working within FCTG access to structured support and the skills to strive to develop their leadership potential. While the event is enjoyable and entertaining, the initiative is driving serious big-picture initiatives. The WomenWise committee wrapped up the day by promising women will make up 50% of FCTG’s Australian senior leadership team by 2020.
We are very proud to be part of the sponsorship team for this event and to play a small role in the flourishing WomenWise movement.
