We were very grateful to receive support from the Queensland Government Legacy Program of the Commonwealth Games to continue the conversation on gender equality in Queensland and our Region. This has enabled us to do the following:
WOW Bursary Fund
The support has enabled us to commence a WOW bursary fund to help support women and girls from Queensland who are invited to travel to participate in another WOW Festival. We will work closely with the WOW Foundation in London and will shortly announce our first recipients.
Advancing Women in Business
The Advancing Women in Business Program is an initiative of the Queensland Government Department of Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT) to encourage more women to consider developing their own business opportunities across the State. We have been supported through this Initiative to enhance our Regional Voices program to help women and girls look at what it takes to establish an enterprise, including those with a cultural or social purpose through stories, workshops and mentoring.
