During July I was honoured to speak at the Women Leading Change winter dinner at Norwood Football Club, hosted by the Women of the EFL.

It was a pleasure to sit on the panel with the likes of AFLW player Katherine Smith and Women’s Health East CEO Kristine Olaris. We spoke to an audience of more than 180 women about our leadership journeys and provided advice on how to become a leader in your chosen field.

As a Councillor it’s part of my role to encourage and support the very many people who contribute so much to our local community. I believe that no matter your gender or age, all Maroondah residents have their own unique skills, passions and strengths that they can use to make Maroondah a great place to live, work and play.

So, if you’re feeling inspired why not pop into a service centre to find out more about the range of volunteer opportunities available.
