It’s time to unpack what’s driving equality advocates 

CEW Podcasts – Driving the Equality Agenda

We all have a role to play when it comes to our shared mission to drive equality and accelerate the advancement of women.

To ignite thinking and give insights into the minds of some of the most prominent women leaders and male equality advocates in Australia, we have produced a brand-new podcast series, Driving the Equality Agenda.

Hosted by CEW member Ann Burns, this must-listen series is a fireside chat featuring speakers such as Hayley Foster, Sam Mostyn, Tsehay Hawkins and many more. 

Listen to feel inspired and motivated to make change. Hayley Foster, CEO of FullStop Australia said to listeners, “Everybody has spheres of influence, whether it be in the board room, on the floor of the office or worksite, or at home, on your sporting fields, in your community or households.”

It’s a space for unpolished, insightful and difficult conversations that will help us all drive towards the advancement of women and true equality.
