Women in Forests and Timber Network (WFTN) – Strength in Support Cocktail Afternoon
August 18, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm$30
WFTN’s “Strength in Support” Cocktail Party is being held to recognise the contributions of the women in our industry and to celebrate their achievements and to support their access to skills and professional development opportunities.
This event will raise money for The Brisbane Domestic Violence Service (BDVS). The BDVS aligns with the WFTN as both organisations have a similar mission – empowering and supporting women in the workplace and in their personal lives. This event provides an opportunity for women in the industry to network and supports each other. The invitation to attend the event is extended to all employers, family and friends of women working in the forest and timber industry – men and women.
The “Strength in Support” Cocktail Party complements the hold quarterly WFTN QLD networking breakfasts and annual field trip. Many women in the forest and timber industry work in finance and administration roles and in remote areas and are unable to attend events held during working hours and too far away. This often compounds a sense of isolation. A weekend networking event provides equal opportunity for all WFTN members and supporters to participate.
