International Women's Day
Tuesday 8 March 2016 marks this year’s International Women’s Day (“IWD”).
IWD celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women around the world. However, it also serves another important function.
IWD events worldwide focus the spotlight on areas of gender disparity and issues facing women in the modern world.
Unsurprisingly, a number of events this year are focusing the spotlight on domestic violence.
Zonta is a global organization of professionals empowering women worldwide through service and advocacy.
This year in celebration of IWD, the Zonta Club of Noosa is hosting its annual IWD Breakfast on 8 March 2016 at the RACV Resort Noosa from 6:30am to 8:30am.
The event aims to raise much needed funds to support women in the local Noosa community, with guest speaker Dr Shannon Spriggs (Mentors in Violence Prevention Program) discussing many of the domestic violence issues plaguing our community. Raffle prizes will also be drawn on the day.
SPM Law is pleased to support the Zonta Club of Noosa in its annual International Women’s Day Breakfast. Lawyers, Fiona Allen and Amy Ryan will be in attendance, while the firm’s partners, Michael Sobey and Julian McNamara have also donated a raffle prize.
This is a great event and tickets are still available for $38 per person through www.trybooking.com
