International Women's Day Breakfast Series

Empowering You | Inspiring You

A collective moment of celebration, and a rallying call for accelerating gender parity. Join us to help build a gender-balanced world - #EachForEqual.

International Women's Day (IWD) – celebrated on 8 March each year – continues to be a rallying point for improving the economic, political and social futures of women. Every year, AHRI’s IWD breakfast events bring together HR professionals and business leaders to honour this international celebration of women.

Join us for the IWD Breakfast Series 2020
A morning of inspiration, empowerment and networking at four cities around Australia:


Presenting: Annabel Crabb

ABC journalist, writer and presenter

Journalist, writer and presenter Annabel Crabb, author of the popular Quarterly Essay Men at Work: Australia's Parenthood Trap, will be bringing her humorous commentary and insightful analysis of the Australian parental leave problem that she believes is keeping women from achieving gender parity.

According to Annabel, gender equity cannot be achieved "until men are as free to leave the workplace as women are to enter it."
