A tremendous thank you to to our Friends, Supporters & Volunteers of Karinya who were involved in or attended our Business of Women Breakfast held on Tuesday 10 September 2019. We were also pleased to welcome guests for whom this was their first “Karinya House” event. It was lovely to have the room filled, with people as well as great energy.
Our guest speaker, the one and only Virginia Haussegger was inspiring and challenging, with some very sobering statistics and numbers, about gender equity, sexism, misogyny and the climb towards the elimination of structural inequity.. What a speaker! Thank you, Virginia, we are so very thrilled you could join us this year. . Our Committee President, Sarah Kelly, said, “Incredible words from an incredible Woman.” We couldn’t agree more.
This year’s event was proudly sponsored by Farrar Gesini Dunn, and we were so pleased to welcome FGD Director, Juliette Ford as emcee of this event. Juliette’s work was sterling and we were quite overwhelmed by her generosity of spirit, and championing of Karinya House. The support and partnership with FGD is generous and understanding. This event is a platform of awareness and recognition, importantly, and with FGD’s support it also supports our delivery of our services.
We also extend our gratitude to venue sponsor Doma Hotels, Hotel Realm and marketing sponsor Clarke Keller. We also thank Elite Event Technology for some consideration in AV pricing.
