We had:

Dr Leonora Risse, Lecturer in Economics at RMIT University, Research Fellow with the Women and Public Policy Program at Harvard University and Women’s Leadership Institute Australia and National Chair of the Women in Economics Network commenting on the 2021-2022 Federal Budget. She says “”Placing a gender lens on next week’s Federal Budget policies will be crucial for ensuring that Australia’s road to economic recovery is a gender equitable one. Cutting the pink tape on women’s workforce participation, increasing paid parental leave for dads, and boosting the availability of childcare and early learning, aged care and disability care are key policies that would lift women’s workforce participation and fuel Australia’s economic recovery…”

Mitch Tambo, First Nations and Sony Music recording star talking about how he is celebrating women and their achievements with his uplifting new single ‘Dreamtime Princess’ that was released on the 7th of May 2021. The track, in which Mitch raps on for the first time in English, was written by Mitch and produced by Rob Amoruso. The 90s inspired production gets you up and dancing, whilst Mitch’s lyrics carry a deeper sentiment.
