SOLD OUT! You're invited to Women in Drinks' inaugural WA event

The Western Australian Chapter of Women in Drinks will hold its inaugural event  - ‘Navigating new ground’ - next month.

Guest speaker at the networking evening will be Kara Donnellan, Fremantle Dockers AFLW Captain. 

Donnellan, 25, noted to Women's Health: "I grew up with football in my blood, I look back at photos of me as a newborn and I’m in my football jumper. My uncle was coaching the local junior under-9s side back in the day and took me down to a training session and, 14 years later, I’m still running around loving this great game.

"I feel so lucky to be a part of this incredible journey, which will give all young girls something to aspire to - something I didn’t have when I was little."

Earlier this year, Donnellan also took out The Sports Award at the Western Australian Young Achiever of the Year Awards for her work in the education and community development department of the Swan Districts Football Club.

Donnellan will share her career story, advice on leadership and navigating new ground. She will offer her tips and tactics to overcome barriers in male dominated industries and her learnings on how she and other women are navigating their way through the competitive world of AFL.

Donnellan is an engaging and sought-after speaker, with firsthand experience on diversity and inclusion in a very competitive field. She is an inspiration all those that hear her speak, providing useful tips along the way.

This event is open to men and women with an interest in the drinks industry.
