Transport's International Women's Day 2020

Did you get the chance to experience Transport’s International Women’s Day last month?

Hear what VET Cadet Tullarah Simpson had to say about the day:

On Thursday March 5th I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to open International Women’s day with an Acknowledgement of Country. It was a moving and motivational day based around this year’s theme #EachforEqual. The day was led by our very own MC Laurena Basutu, with amazing keynote speaker, Annabel Crabb.

Annabel Crabb is an ABC writer and presenter who has covered Australian politics for 20 years but also is well-known for her insightful and humorous analysis on gender and current affairs. Over her career in journalism, Annabel has worked as a political correspondent for The Advertiser, The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald, as Europe correspondent for Fairfax’s Sunday titles and written a popular syndicated newspaper column on politics and social affairs. She is the author of The Wife Drought, a humorous and best-selling account of women and work in Australia.

Annabel boasts the awkward distinction of being Twitter’s most-followed Australian journalist, with an audience of nearly half a million.

Transports International Women’s Day was overall, inspiring and moving. Having had the opportunity to hear and understand the personal journeys of both men and women on the panel, from across the organisation and network amongst such strong and talented women.

Transport’s International Women’s Day event displayed our organisations commitment to working towards gender equality for all. Together we can make change and continue to build on a more inclusive world"
