“The international Women’s Day theme ties in perfectly with VIEW’s ethos,” said President Dianne McLeod.

“Our members have really gotten behind IWD this year,” she continued.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity to discuss the theme of equity with our guest speaker Gurmesh Singh, who has experience dealing with women in politics, and to explore ways in which we can create gender equality across our community.”

Throughout the year, VIEW members speak out on a wide range of issues that are essential for the wellbeing not of only women, but of all Australians.

“We advocate to government on reducing child poverty across Australia, and on increasing social and affordable housing to address homelessness,” said Dianne.

VIEW is a national women’s organisation with 14,000 members in close to 300 communities exclusively supporting the children’s education charity.

The Smith Family members sponsor students and also volunteer, fundraise and advocate to improve the life outcomes of Australian children and young people experiencing disadvantage.

Members volunteer their support in a number of ways including reading with local children to advance their literary skills, tutoring students with homework at The Smith Family’s after-school Learning Clubs, and participating in The Smith Family’s mentoring programs.
