This Report captures the key issues, potential partnerships and best ideas from the day. It provides an overview of our brilliant keynote speaker Lisa Witter’s address about the need for “bridge-builders” who can reach across different sectors to find new ways to collaborate and achieve real change.

NCOSS brought together key thinkers and stakeholders from across the community sector, business, academia, unions and government to develop this plan for action that so that all women and girls can make meaningful choices and freely determine the outcome of their lives.

This discussion paper was the starting point for a series of roundtable and meetings to inform the New Year for Women project. It focuses on the economic inequality that women and girls experience across their life cycle.

In order to shape a plan for action as part of the NCOSS New Year for Women Project, NCOSS held a series of roundtables and consultations in both metropolitan and regional parts of NSW hearing from over 100 organisations and key stakeholders. The roundtables brought together women from diverse backgrounds and experiences, with first-hand and expert knowledge of what is needed in communities across the state to financially empower women and prevent economic hardship.

This week NCOSS brought together young women from around the State to talk women and girls’ economic empowerment across their life cycle.

We heard from inspirational and impressive young women who have great insight into the key concerns for young women and a vision and the solutions for their own economic empowerment.
