News Bizwear Backs WomenWise Conference

11 April 2019

At Bizwear we are big believers in gender diversity and fostering gender equality in the workplace. We were delighted to co-sponsor last month’s WomenWise conference, hosted by our client Flight Centre Travel Group.

The brainchild of Flight Centre’s senior female leaders, WomenWise aims to inspire all women by showcasing opportunity, providing role models and offering structured support to achieve gender balance.

More than 470 Flight Centre women from around Australia flew to Sydney for a day of networking and inspirational speakers, including former prime minister Julia Gillard and world champion surfer Layne Beachley.

Flight Centre’s managing director Graham ‘Skroo’ Turner also took to the stage, sharing his modern take on gender equality thanks to the inspirational women in his life, like his wife and daughter.

The event closed with gender equality advocate Lisa Wilkinson sharing her unconventional career path, from her early days in the Dolly office to her first job offer from Kerry Packer. Her message was simple: “we are good enough”.

Women who attended described the event as uplifting, thought-provoking, and even “the most inspiring conference I’ve been to.”

We are very proud to be part of the sponsorship team that made it all possible
