Launch Night: Franklin Women Impact Report

We think it is about time for a (COVID Safe!) celebration and what better reason to come together than to launch our 5 years of Franklin Women Impact Report.

It has been an amazing journey for our organisation since we launched in 2014. One of the biggest learnings for us over this time has been the importance of community and what great things can be achieved when like-minded people come together. At this even we will be proudly sharing with you our 2020 Impact Report which moves beyond numbers and captures the real impact that we have had in our first 5 years, through stories by you.

No matter how you identify as part of the FW Community - a member, social media follower, a mentoring program participant or maybe a champion from afar – please join us to celebrate, and be inspired, by stories of impact from across the FW community moderated by award winning journalist Catherine Fox.

This will be a mixed mode event with limited in person places in response to COVID_19. However, we have unlimited virtual spaces where we will live stream the event straight to you, wherever you are! So, set your favourite show on record, get the little people to bed, or pack the emails away, and grab a drink and join us for an evening of lessons, laughs and connection with others who have been on the FW journey.
