International Women’s Day 2020

by Luke EASTMAN -

On Friday a group of Kaplan colleagues went to an event at the Adelaide Convention Centre to observe International Women’s Day. The theme for this year’s celebration was #EachforEqual (and hence our arms being held as equals symbols).

 

We heard from an inspiring panel of women who really gave us topics to think about and saw some very deserving winners of awards for amazing work in the South Australian community.
