Engaging Women uses its platforms as a vehicle to raise awareness and money for women and children in crisis. In doing so, it spreads the message that violence against women is not on.

Engaging Women won  a ‘White Ribbon Australia’ award in 2015.



Another event raised thousands to support women in crisis and promoted the good work of Fair Agenda.

The Engaging Women platform also offers other change-makers an opportunity to make an impact through the ‘Ambassadors for good’ program.
