International Women’s Day
Mr NORTHE (Morwell) (13:47:07) — This week, on 8 March, International Women’s Day will be celebrated across Victorian communities, and I would like to acknowledge the work and contributions of so many amazing women within the Morwell electorate.
For example, the Latrobe Women in Business (LWB) network provides an opportunity for women who are involved in business to be supported and inspired by their peers. The LWB network has hosted some terrific events over the years, and many of its members are not only part of successful local businesses but also exceptional leaders within our community. One great example is the CEO of Work Solutions Gippsland, Donna Faulkner. Work Solutions Gippsland was recently awarded an extension of their disability employment contract, which is terrific news for many in the Gippsland community. Work Solutions Gippsland has been an exceptional locally owned and grown company, which creates employment opportunities for people living with a disability, injury or health condition. Congratulations to Donna and all her team, and to the LWB network for their wonderful support of local women.
