International Women’s Day: Is Male Allyship Required to Interrupt Gender Bias?

9 March, 2021 @ 12:00 am - 1:30 am

International Women's Day Event

Please join us for this challenging and engaging conversation on gender bias.

A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change. Will you help Rare Birds forge a gender equal world? This year we are celebrating International Women’s Day by shining a light on gender bias and the role that men can play to bring about change. Let’s celebrate women’s achievements, raise awareness against bias, take action for equality and #choosetochallenge.

We will be exploring the important topic of male allyship and whether, in the year 2021, the involvement and sponsorship of men is required in order for women to succeed, or are women able to drive their own success?

Moderated by our very own CEO and Founder, Jo Burston, we will be speaking to a panel of esteemed experts and asking their educated opinion on this important topic.

Guest panelists are:

Rae Cooper AO: Professor of Gender, Work and Employment Relations and Co-Director of the Women Work and Leadership Research Group at the University of Sydney.

Troy Roderick: Inclusion & Diversity Advisor.

Dai Le: Founder of DAWN, Diversity & Inclusion Advocate and Councillor at Fairfield City Council

Josh Griffin: Head of Inclusion and Talent Development at SBS

Join us for what will be a thought-provoking and lively discussion to celebrate International Women’s Day 2021.
