Wow, what a great success this day was! The Women’s Leadership Forum brought together ladies from all over Wellington, and all walks of life. We had a stunning midwinter’s day at the Silverstream Retreat, and a great agenda to share. The day was based around four workshops:
- Leadership in the community
- Building relationships with local schools
- Developing our own businesses or projects
- Interfaith Leadership.
Spread around these were games, food, and some amazing inspirational speakers – we were lucky enough to have Mayor Wayne Guppy, Ann Dysart, and Barbara Bedeschi just to name a few. It was a very uplifting experience to see women sharing their stories and challenges, and watch them ignite with energy and passion as the workshops began to reunite them with their potential.
There was a hugely positive response to the day and much demand to carry on the work that was started here. We are currently planning a second forum for next month, and have a fantastic plan for next year in the works, so stay tuned!
