Tandem eNews #164 March 8th 2022

Dear members and supporters,

Happy International Women’s Day!

It’s been an exciting day here at Tandem. We hosted around 70 members, guests, and staff at our first International Women’s Day (IWD) breakfast in the Event Space in our new Trenerry Crescent home.

It was an honour to host Thirrili CEO Annette Vickery, who joined us to convene a Yarn with Tandem’s own CEO, on the rise of Lived Experience leadership.

Depending on where you look, the theme for International Women’s Day in 2022 is either ‘Break the bias’ or ‘Changing Climates: Equality today for a sustainable tomorrow’.

Both celebrate working to end gender bias and inequality, and the harms that they bring to women, non-binary and gender diverse folk – as well as to men whenever they step outside of stereotypical male roles, e.g. taking on carer roles.

In Australia in 2022:

While some women in Australia feel like they don’t experience the effects of gender bias in their everyday life, progress hasn’t been equal.

Please read on through our IWD edition of eNews to find some great resources on financial wellbeing for women, as well as some IWD and International Transgender Day of Visibility events that are coming up over the next few weeks.
