Women in Forests & Timber Network Charity Cocktail Fundraiser
Saturday 24 August 2019
The Pineapple Hotel, 706 Mains Road, Kangaroo Point
WFTN Charity Cocktail Fundraiser for Friends with Dignity Australia
Join us on Saturday 24th August for an afternoon of champagne and networking, to support the Women in Forests & Timber Network's 2019 charity of choice - Friends with Dignity Australia.
The forest and timber industry is a male dominated industry, women comprise approximately 5% of the workforce. The Women in Forests and Timber Network (WFTN) QLD is a forum for women in our industry to meet, exchange ideas and ensure their voices are heard.
Our events are held to recognise the contributions of the women in our industry and to celebrate their achievements and to support their access to skills and professional development opportunities.
Many women in the forest and timber industry work in financial and administration roles, and in remote areas, and are unable to attend events held during working hours. This often compounds a sense of isolation. A weekend networking event provides equal opportunity for all WFTN members and supporters to participate.
The WFTN has a proud history of community outreach, and each year we partner with a charity organisation to assist in their mission to empower women who are disadvantaged or exploited.
About Friends with Dignity Australia
Friends with Dignity is a national not-for-profit community organisation providing assistance to women, men and children who have been displaced by domestic violence and assisting them to rebuild their lives with purpose, dignity and hope. They work with a network of refuges and community services to provide critical and practical services tailored to the specific needs of the individual seeking help and intervention. Friends with Dignity is completely run by dedicated volunteers who believe in a world where everyone has access to a safe and loving homefree from violence and abuse.
