  • Charles Sturt University in Albury-Wodonga to be satellite host of the Sydney Opera House’s ‘All About Women’ event

Charles Sturt University is ensuring women in regional Australia do not miss out on the ‘All About Women’ event at the Sydney Opera House.

The University in Albury-Wodonga is a satellite host and will livestream the three headline talks on campus at the C.D. Blake Theatre.

All About Women aims to empower and encourage women to push their boundaries by posing questions about gender, justice and equality through a series of talks, panels, workshops and livestreams.

A full list of speakers is available on the All About Women website, but the main stage highlights will be available to those in the Albury-Wodonga region to experience as they are happening in Sydney.

The sessions to be livestreamed in Albury-Wodonga are:

  • 11am to midday – The Gendered Brain with Gina Rippon and host Natasha Mitchell
  • 12.15pm to 1.15pm – The Forgotten Women of Astronomy with Jo Dunkley and host Rae Johnston
  • 2.30pm to 3.30pm – Sober Curious? with Jill Stark, Yumi Stynes and Shanna and host Clementine Ford

The satellite event is a partnership with Charles Sturt, the Two Cities One Community initiative, and TAFE NSW.

Gina RipponCharles Sturt Director of External for Albury-Wodonga Ms Samantha Beresford said this collaboration was crucial to showing rural residents they are not missing out on big city events.

“Charles Sturt University is committed to providing staff, students and our communities with the same opportunities and experiences that are available in metropolitan cities,” Ms Beresford said.

“This satellite event is a chance for residents to listen to empowering sessions by female leaders without having to travel.

“It is also a chance for the University to again work with organisations in the community to bring events that benefit the region.”

Light refreshments will be served at the event, which is being held at Charles Sturt in Albury-Wodonga at the C. D. Blake Theatre, building 751, room 104, car park 2.

Register to attend the satellite event on the Charles Sturt website.
