It was a scorcher for our first networking event of 2019, but that didn’t stop more than 40 Spence Ladies and friends from showing up to mingle outside.
Following the format of our most successful event of 2018, members were invited to introduce someone new to the Club by bringing a plus-one. Guests were welcomed on the warm summer evening with a cold glass of sparkling wine, cheese plates and pizzas.
As a conversation starter, we asked attendees to write the name of a woman they admire on a blank name tag, to wear below their own name, and discuss the reasons for their choice with a new connection. Role models ranged from celebrities like Emma Watson and Jessica Alba to Australian inspirations such as Turia Pitt or women working in the same fields as Spence Ladies.
Thanks again to our hosts at Treasury 1860 in the CBD.
Our next event will be a screening of the upcoming film On the Basis of Sex, starring Felicity Jones as pioneering equal rights lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg. More details on this February 8 gathering will be available via our social media channels.
