The 2020 global IWD theme is Generation Equality.
Generation Equality is a call to action to join forces across generations, to create a world where every girl and woman has equal opportunities to fulfil their full potential.
Equal access to education and income are central to levelling the playing field for women around the world.
Half a billion of the world’s illiterate adults are women.
This trend has not changed in 20 years. UN Women is actively working to change that.

Kemi Nekvapil’s Dare to Lead Retreat – May 2020 – Only 2 places left!
Message from Kemi:
When I was training with Dr Brenè Brown in June of last year, I had a powerful desire to create an intimate retreat for female leaders to complete the full 16 hour Dare To Lead program. Not in a corporate room, but in a stunning retreat setting, where we could dive deep into the work, and have time to enjoy walks along the magnificent ocean road coastline, enjoy meals cooked by a private chef and enjoy the company of each other.
The retreat is only open to eight participants.
At the end of last year I invited my current clients to attend the retreat and all places were taken within 29 hours, but due to life circumstances for a couple of women, there are now two places available.
Is one of them yours?
Dates: May 14 – 7pm – May 17 – 5pm 2020
Where: The Summer House, Torquay, Victoria
