About the Engaging Women platform

About Engaging Women.

Engaging women elevates the voices of women and girls through publishing, mentorship and advocacy.

We share insights and wisdom from some of the most accomplished people in the nation.

It’s a site of trusted content, community, inspiration, and a video series.

The National Library of Australia selected this site to be enjoyed by readers across the nation citing its cultural value.

“We don’t collect every Australian website but select with an eye for content… The Library aspires to enable Australians to understand their diverse social, cultural and intellectual histories by collecting and preserving Australian publications and unpublished collections—in print and digital forms—so that they can be enjoyed by current and future generations.”

Thank you so much for the outstanding job you did as MC for Lunch to Liberate. You were engaging, warm, smart, articulate and always in control.

We truly couldn’t have asked for a more perfect MC for the day and we felt very lucky to have you!

School talks include: Bialik College – Year 12 students

Martine was engaging, weaving her message of equality, empowerment and respect through her personal narrative.  Students and staff present were both entertained and educated – a pleasure to hear, perfectly pitched and something that every school community should hear.
