Strut Your Stuff
We have a bold mission: to put South Australia on the map as the first place in the world where 50% of start-up founders are female and 50% of business investment goes to those females. During Open State we are taking our mission to the streets of Adelaide with an event that brings together the start-up, enterprise and investment community to Strut our Stuff through the city from the community table in the Central Market to the Parliamentary table in Old Parliment House, the first chamber in the world to pass laws for women to stand for parliament.
This is a grassroots movement pulled together in a group called Chooks, recently founded by Moira Deslandes and gathering 700 male and female members in just four months. We are looking for those who recognise the enormous opportunities both financial and for the community that derive from a gender diverse economy to bring your voice to this event on Thursday morning 28th September 2017.
At exactly the same time that the Chiefs of Gender Equity and the Premier's Council for Women are meeting to discuss the ongoing gender pay gap and gender equity in the work force, we will meet at the Market for a light breakfast before taking our mission up King William Street to Old Parliament House where we will be hosted by the sitting female parliamentarians.
Please add your voice to this mission by joining us at Strut Your Stuff.
Strut your Stuff is a collaboration by female founders including with Moira from Chooks, Amy Orange and KiK Coffee to kickstart the Open State Festival and our push for equity in future enterprise. The event is proudly supported by Enabling Solutions, Workforce Blueprint and the Flinders University Gender Consortium and women's studies.
