It’s time to celebrate ladies

THIS year, The Express Newspaper will be hosting our inaugural International Women's Day breakfast to celebrate the amazing things women do every day.

Briana Enoch will be one of the guest speakers for the event.

This year’s theme is embracing equity and we are welcoming people from across the region to come together and celebrate women's achievements, raise awareness about discrimination and take action to drive gender parity.

The breakfast will be held at the Mareeba Leagues Club on 8 March (International Women's Day) from 7am to 9am.

Included in the $40 ticket price will be a full buffet breakfast, inspirational guest speakers Jo Whitton (CEO of Quirky Cooking) and Briana Enoch (Designer of Jarawee) and local musician Aurelle Brunjes will provide the entertainment.

Jo Whitton is a Malanda mum who helped her son's mental health and OCD with gut healing and has shared her journey through her several books.

Briana Enoch is a local First Nations woman who has incorporated culture into fashion, with her label Jarawee catching the eyes of many - including Jimmy Choo and Australian Fashion Week.

The Express managing director Carl Portella is pleased to be hosting this event in the region and welcomes every one to join in.

“International Women’s Day is a day to recognised and celebrate the amazing work of women within our community,” he said.

“This year's event will be held in Mareeba, but we hope to bring it to other areas of our readership in the future.”

All proceeds from this event will go to Tablelands Sexual Assault Service (TSAS) to help fund the incredible work they do in the community.

TSAS provides sexual assault counselling for all children and young people, and non-offending women and men, as well as community education and is a very worthy cause for this year’s event.

We are extending our invite to the amazing women and men of our region to join us for a morning of inspiration and networking.
