Missed Women Powering Climate Action? Catch up now.

In March 2020, just as COVID-19 lock down restrictions were beginning to become part of the new normal, the Victorian Women’s Trust held a panel event at the Wheeler Centre, Women Powering Climate Action.

Missed it? Catch up now with a captioned version of the live stream:

Featuring Amelia Telford (national director, Seed Indigenous Youth Climate Network); Christina Hobbs (CEO, Verve Super Australia’s first super fund for women)⁠; Petra Stock (program manager, ClimateWorks Australia); moderated by Mary Crooks AO (Executive Director, Victorian Women’s Trust).

The event was opened with a Welcome to Country from Leanne Miller, a proud woman of the Dhulanyagen Ulupna Clan, Yorta Yorta nation. Leanne is also the Executive Director of Koorie Women Mean Business, a longstanding Board Member of the Victorian Women’s Trust, and an Inaugural Atlantic Fellow for Social Equity (2017).

To protect the health and wellbeing of staff, panelists and the community, this panel was a live stream event only.

Live streaming this event was made possible thanks to our live stream partner, Emma Whiting Travel & Cruise, a women-led business that firmly believes in supporting other women.
