Network of Women Students Australia Conference

NOWSA is founded on ideals of creating a grassroots, autonomous network concerned with issues that impact women and women students. The conference provides an opportunity for women-identifying and non-binary students to engage with personal, political, social and cultural issues that affect women. The conference allows students to share resources, skills and knowledge. Attendees also have the opportunity to work together to develop strategies to improve the experiences of women in Australia. 
The theme of this years conference is about empowering and upskilling women to run their own campaigns and actively participate in the movement. It's important that women are not just being a part of the movement for change but are leading it themselves.

Food - Lunch and a small snack will be provided each day of the conference.
