Martine Harte, a women’s advocate, who was awarded a prestigious Melbourne Press Club Gold Quill Award for excellence in journalism, a Logie award nomination and most recently appeared as a panellist on SKY news Australia.

She founded Engaging Women in 2013, because she couldn’t find anything like it in the digital space.

Her first interview was with an Australian female physicist, then the CEO of the Single Mother’s Association.

Martine was on-air for more than a decade as a television journalist interviewing some of the world’s most famous faces.

She is a dedicated voice in relation to elevating the voices of women in the public arena and uses new media to challenge thinking around the rights of women and girls.

SOCIAL IMPACT

This platform was founded on the notion that we can all spark change for good.

Engaging Women is committed to its social purpose.

Engaging Women’s not-for-profit ‘Ambassadors for Good Program’  supports women and children in crisis and elevates the voices of purpose driven women.

Kind words from a reader sum it up:

“Engaging Women is a space of beauty, inspiration, wardrobe/house peeking & girl cheerleading. It’s also about tough issues like Family Violence so therefore it’s also about hope.”
