Just wanted to let you know about an interesting International Women’s Day even in Sydney:
“You are invited to attend WE WIN, a celebration of International Women’s Day presented by Women as Entrepreneurs.
This is an awareness event – a celebration of successes of women with a focus on enabling change for women as entrepreneurs, both here and in the third world. Profit will go towards empowering women living in poverty in developing countries. We would like to extend our offer to you to join us for drinks and light refreshments for our event. Partners are welcome to attend. In addition to the generosity of the speakers, our sponsors have arranged to put together a gift bag for all attendees to ensure that they can take a little bit of the WE WIN event home with them. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Women as Entrepreneurs, or WE, provides a supportive community where likeminded aspiring and accomplished female entrepreneurs can learn, connect, and share ideas.
With her new video blog, http://womenasentrepreneurs.com.au/, Founder Orsi Parkanyi is on a mission to find out what drives entrepreneurial women and how exactly they achieve success as women. Her personal belief, “women leaders have the power to shape a better world”, drives her to inspire and foster entrepreneurship in those around her.”
