International Women's Day 2019
AusBG celebrated International Women’s Day 2019 on the 7th March with an amazing high tea at the beautiful Rosewood Hotel Abu Dhabi. Over 50 women, spanning a variety of backgrounds, cultures and industries, attended the event. We were honoured to welcome representatives from the Australian Embassy and Austrade including Mrs Julie Shams, Mrs Britt Spyrou and Mrs Anne-Louise Halliday.
Kate Midttun, AusBG Chairperson, spoke on the importance of connecting women both in and out of the workplace and the opportunities that events such as this provide for informal networking.
Anna Brownell, AusBG Board Member, took the opportunity to outline the unique role AusBG plays in the landscape of Abu Dhabi and the UAE both as a business group and a social network.
With so many remarkable women in attendance, the conversations flowed, stories were shared, and new connections were forged.
