New EEAA chief to lead discussion at International Women’s Day Breakfast

The Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia (EEAA) has unveiled its line-up of speakers for the 2020 EEAA International Women’s Day Breakfast.

Led by EEAA chief executive Claudia Sagripanti, the panel will explore the #EachforEqual global theme with a focus on ageism, bias against the young and the old and employability of people of all ages.

Daz Chandler – interdisciplinary storyteller; Natalie Yan-Chatonsky – founder of Full Time Lives; Erica Blythe – director of finance and administration at ICC Sydney; and Christine Kotsis – senior business development manager at Harry the Hirer, will take to the stage to share their stories.

“I am truly delighted to have joined the association and to be able to lead this discussion around equality in the workplace and the importance of breaking down unconscious bias to implement change,” said Sagripanti.

“We will again continue our focus on corporate social responsibility with the support of two important charities, Fitted For Work and UN Women Australia and we invite all attendees to make a contribution towards improving the lives of women in our community.”

In support of the Fitted for Work organisation, the EEAA is asking guests who attend the breakfast to donate good quality corporate clothing, shoes and accessories to help disadvantaged women return to the workforce.

The event will be held at Dolton House, Hyde Park on March 5.
