About our keynote speaker 🔈
Sarah Williams is a proud Awabakal woman and founder and CEO of What Were You Wearing Australia (WWYW), a not-for-profit organisation fighting to end sexual violence. In 2023, Sarah led a nightlife safety campaign where she collected more than 20,000 signatures on a petition to the NSW Government. This resulted in mandated drink spiking education for all venue and bar staff in NSW, amending Responsible Service of Alcohol laws. In 2022 she developed Australia’s first sexual assault service for music festivals. In recognition of her work, she was named Newcastle Woman of the Year 2023, won the Community Service Award at the NSW/ACT Young Achiever Awards 2023, was a finalist in the Australian Human Rights Awards – Young People’s Award 2023 and is a current finalist of the NSW Young Woman of the Year Awards!

️ We wanted to provide a pre trigger warning for this event. There may be discussions of sexual violence and drink spiking. Please only attend if you are safe and comfortable to do so. We will have resources on the day for anyone wanting to reach out to any services. However we always recommend 1800 RESPECT if overwhelmed or triggered.
