2022 - 12th Annual Women's Network Conference 'Unlock YOU'

We caught up with some of our Women's Network Committee Members who shared their reflections on the recent Women's Network Conference 'Unlock YOU' held on Friday 4 November at SkyCity Adelaide. Read what they had to say below:

“What an amazing conference we had this year. Great team effort by the Women’s Network Committee. Each year the bar goes up, which is fantastic!

For me the conference Unlock YOU was about focussing on self and reflection. What I loved about the day was being able to connect with other passionate and amazing women from varying backgrounds and roles from metro and regional councils across SA.

The theme resonated with me personally and I loved all speakers during the day. The panel discussion was very insightful and inspirational. A special shout out to Dr Hannah Brown who outdid herself. I find my involvement with the Women’s Network Committee very rewarding and am privileged to be working alongside some amazing women.”

"Unlock YOU was a fantastic day with over 260 participants. It's so heart-warming to see so many women in local government enjoying these events put on by the awesome team at LG Professionals SA. Having been on the committee as the only outdoor worker for 3 years I was particularly happy to see a whole table of outdoor women from City of Port Adelaide Enfield. Dr Hannah Brown was the absolute highlight of the day with her entertaining approach to science. It was a great day all round."
