Business School a university for the real world

Event

18 September 2019

What do partnerships look like, in communities across the world? How can partnerships work effectively to accelerate improvements to infrastructure, employment opportunities and safety for women?

In late 2018, Professor Vicky Browning and Associate Professor Deanna Grant-Smith joined a delegation from UN Women National Committee Australia to witness UN Women’s work in Fiji, principally funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).

At this breakfast event, Vicky and Deanna will share their reflections on the profound impact of UN Women’s programs, and lead discussion on the lessons we can learn about the essential ingredients for effective partnerships in diverse contexts.

The conversation will be moderated by Janelle Weissman, Executive Director of UN Women National Committee Australia. An opening address by Nick Williams, Deputy Director of the Queensland Office of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade will provide insights into DFAT’s focus on gender in the aid and development agenda.
