UPDATE – Date Changed to Wednesday 21 April.
Outside the Canberra Bubble – Where to from here
The National Council of Women of Queensland is proud to host our second discussion series exploring the topic that we, men and women, are all talking about. Our disappointment and disgust at what has been exposed in Canberra is further escalated by the knowledge that it is not limited to Parliament House. This session is about discussing beyond the obvious and having a conversation with you, our members, as to how we can seize this moment, to work with our elected leaders, to chart a new course for the future.
About the Venue
The Tattersalls Club Brisbane, founded in 1865 by a group of men, is one of the first “gentlemen’s” clubs to end gender-specific discrimination in 2018 by welcoming women as financial members. As one of the oldest institutions in Queensland, Tatts is delighted to be able to partner with the NCWQ to ensure equal access and equal opportunities for all.

About the Council meetings
At our council meeting series for 2021, we welcome a guest speaker to come along and talk to us about a variety of topics. These are held every two months (full list of dates below) following our Management Committee meetings, to open up the conversations to all our members and friends of NCWQ.
The aim is to provide an opportunity for our amazing network to come share their stories, insights and knowledge, and also provide members and friends of NCWQ an opportunity to mingle and network. Come meet us, have a chat, expand your networks and perhaps learn something along the way!
