Event details

These state-based events have been created to enable both women and men to network, learn and support broader diversity and inclusion in the finance broking industry.

As part of the MFAA's Opportunities for Women (OFW) initiative, this event will provide you with an opportunity to listen to an educational keynote speaker, who will focus on the current positioning on the female economy and the growth of small-medium sized businesses; with Jane Counsel, our subject matter expert, who will present the findings from our report and discuss strategies on how you can get involved locally.

We will then finish up with networking opportunities with peers in our exhibition of select industry supporters.

Everyone is welcome to attend. Ticket numbers are limited.
