The online Forum is organised by Lawyers with Solutions as an approved collaboration with NSW Government Small Business Month #RebuildRechargeandRenew, and during NSW Women’s week. It will be held on Monday, 7 March, from 5.30pm to 7pm. The forum will share information on how to start a business, and how to #breakthebias and thrive in challenging circumstances.

Event convenor and well-known lawyer and advocate, and Founder of Innate Power of Women, Pallavi Sinha will moderate the panel.

“As part of celebrating International Women’s Day, we are excited that inspiring women business leaders will share their success stories and challenges, and how they overcame barriers to #breakthebias” said Ms Sinha.
“This is the third event supported by Innate Power of Women. Small businesses have been impacted by Covid-19. For example, almost half (47%) of all businesses are experiencing supply chain disruptions.” she said

One of the speakers, Ms Oberoi, experienced crippling mental health challenges and struggled to find purpose for years, until she began work as a carer in 2007. The experience inspired her to launch Afea, which now supports more than 1,000 families every week.

“The past two years have been incredibly challenging for women in NSW, especially small business owners,” NSW Minister for Women Bronnie Taylor said.
“NSW Women’s Week is an important time to recognise and celebrate the diversity of women and girls in communities across our State.”

Federal Member for Reid, and Chair of the Select Committee on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention, Dr Fiona Martin MP said :

“These recent times have created mental health challenges while also demonstrating the extraordinary resilience of our community, especially our small business community. International Women’s Day is a time to celebrate the achievements of women across all fields of endeavour and reflect on the obstacles they have overcome.”

Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Harman Foundation Her House (which provides accommodation to women & their children escaping domestic and family violence) For more information about the event, and to book tickets, please click here
