    Event description

    The Power of Connectivity: Discover Digital Inclusion

    In a world increasingly driven by technology, being digitally connected is a necessity. Yet, the critical issue of digital inclusion often goes unnoticed, especially its impact on women who are disproportionately left behind in areas like decision-making, economic empowerment, and civic participation. 

    Our panelists will give us unique insights into the digital divide impacting the wellbeing of women and families in our community.

      Photography - by Fotografa AU "Hi there! My name is Laura Alicia and I'm a deaf photographer originally from Mexico, but now living in the beautiful city of Melbourne. Photography is my absolute passion and greatest joy. I love that through my camera, I freeze-frame all the big and little moments that make life so special.
      Whether it's capturing the refined elegance of a new product line, or the unscripted chaos and pure love of a couple's wedding day, I can do it all! My photographer's eye sees things differently being deaf, but that's what allows me to create such unique, eye-catching shots. Every time I go behind the lens, I strive to craft images packed with emotion and creativity. I'd be honoured and delighted to work with you to tell your story, one beautiful frame at a time."

      Catering by Free to Feed We'll re-connect with our former grantee, Free to Feed, a social enterprise creating empowering employment opportunities for people seeking asylum and refugees. Since 2015, Free to Feed has provided over $1.8 million in wages to people from asylum seeking and refugee backgrounds and 60,000 hours of paid cooking and hospitality training.
      Free to Feed will serve us a variety of their delicious dishes including their house-made focaccia or a gluten free lavosh which perfectly accompany their dips, labne, olives, falafel, house pickled and seasonal vegetables. 
      From their more substantial plates, cabbage and walnut rolls and lamb kofte with pomegranate molasses will augment their abundant and beautiful grazing table.
