International Women’s Day is an annual celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women right across the globe. Its theme for 2018 is #PressforProgress
Women in drinks is holding an International Women's Day event featuring one of Australia’s most admired women, Turia Pitt. Pitt will share her intensely personal story of thriving in the face of extreme adversity. A mining engineer and ultra-marathon runner, Turia suffered life-threatening burns during in an event in 2011.
She’s gone on to compete in ironman events, raise more than $1million for Intersplast and has recently given birth to her first child.
"Surviving against overwhelming odds, I’ve rebuilt my life and defied every expectation placed on me," she said. "I’m living proof that, with the right mindset, we truly can achieve anything. Through my books, online programs and events, I provide the tools to help you step outside of your comfort zones, kick big goals and transform your life."
Bryce Corbett, co-author of Pitt's latest book "Unmasked" notes: "I challenge anyone to spend even the tiniest amount of time in the company of Turia Pitt and not come away determined to make more of their life."
Lunch will be followed by an honest and lively discussion asking 'Is Trying Good Enough?' led by Australian industry experts, who will debate the pitfalls and pointers in the quest for gender diversity.
