‘Listening, learning and lifting’ at Women's Day event

Consortium Private Wealth’s Rachael Todman and Olivia Glare are aiming to ‘inspire inclusion’ at an International Women’s Day event in Horsham.

Ms Glare said International Women’s Day, on Friday March 8, was an opportunity to celebrate accomplishments of trailblazing women who have shattered barriers, challenged norms and paved the way for future generations.

“This year our theme is Inspire Inclusion, which is about fostering a world where every woman feels valued, respected, and empowered to pursue her dreams,” she said.

“It’s about recognising the diversity of women’s experiences.”

Ms Todman said the free event would bring together some incredible women to share their journeys and insights.

“The event will be hosted at Horsham Regional Art Gallery from 2.30pm to 4pm on March 8,” she said.

“By listening, learning and lifting each other up, we can inspire positive change and build a future where every woman can thrive.”

Ms Todman said as business partners and financial advisors, she and Ms Glare would speak about wealth building and financial independence for women, including challenges women face and the importance of financial literacy, confidence and empowerment in long-term financial wellbeing.

She said other speakers included Horsham’s Lister House Medical Clinic chief executive Amanda Wilson, Lisa Cosson of Planet Feel Good, Evoke Kinesiology’s Arnna Pickering and Member for Lowan Emma Kealy.

Mrs Wilson will offer insights into leadership, perseverance, the importance of community support, and the joy she finds in inspiring others along the way.

Ms Cosson will take attendees through the ups and downs of her entrepreneurial journey, sharing the challenges she faced in navigating a competitive industry and breaking barriers in a male-dominated space, the lessons she learned, and the strategies she employed to overcome obstacles.

In her presentation, Ms Pickering will open up about her own experiences founding a business focussed on holistic wellness – addressing physical and emotional aspects of well-being – and how it shaped her journey to inspire others.

Ms Kealy will reflect on her experiences in leadership as she has navigated complex situations, from breaking through gender biases to advocating for community needs.
