How do we achieve a truly gender-balanced world?

Let's celebrate the International Women's Day and attend the TED-Style Talks event on this theme. Each speaker talks for about 10 mins. At the end, we have a panel discussion with all speakers.

Talks:
1. "Are we creating gender unbalance in the name of 'balance'?"
- Shahed Abujwaied (founder/CEO of Integrate Women International)

2. "Addressing the victimisation of women and encouraging them to become confident individuals"
- Cate Garcia (women’s, LGBTQI and human rights activist)

3. "A brief history of women's rights: a short tour down through
history of women's role in society and how it informs us today"
- Glenys Earle (yoga teacher and natural health therapist)

4. "Progress towards a gender equal NZ"
- Arna Metcalfe (mother, teacher, activist and board member of National Council of Women)

We gather over snacks at 6:30pm for a 7pm start to the talks. Please bring along $5 entry fee to cover event costs.
