Newsletter, 12 November 2020

Dear Friends,

It feels like 2020 has finally turned the corner with good news on the global, national and local fronts!

The election of the first woman, first black person and first person of Asian descent, as Vice President of the United States is momentous and we celebrate Kamala Harris and the Biden-Harris win.

Nationally, we celebrate the news that Australia will again be represented on the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) with Natasha Stott Despoja’s appointment this week.  And on the local front, today we celebrate a baker’s dozen of zero coronavirus cases in Melbourne. Take a bow Victoria!  With our Annual Gender-wise Event just around the corner we are looking forward to ending this long and challenging year on a high and would love you to join us in celebration, and for the big reveal of our new brand – registration details below.

It’s NAIDOC week and we highlight some brilliant opportunities for funders wishing to make a positive impact on the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and girls, and a special bedtime activity we can all undertake beginning next week.

As we approach giving Tuesday on December 1st we encourage you to give as generously as you can to organisations and initiatives you feel passionate about, and to be intentional about ensuring your giving will benefit women and girls.

With warmest regards,

Julie
