In order to support this non-profit organisation, I offered Red and Black Solution’s support by redesigning their old website and building an event website on top of helping out in the planning and organisation of the event itself.
As an Australasian woman, my personal connection to DAWN’s cause compelled me to support this event and this organisation. DAWN itself aims to build leadership capability, as well as mentor and harness talent from the Australasian community, particularly in women.
Despite the relatively large population of Asian Australians, it is clear to see that there is a significant under representation of Australasian talent, particularly women, in leadership roles. This applies to many fields including business, media, and politics. Though it could be easy to sit back and merely hope the situation improves, DAWN continues to work towards fostering this under-utilised talent and provide a supportive network for Australasians to realise their leadership potential.
With wonderful guest speakers such as Australia’s Race Discrimination Commissioner, Dr. Tim Soutphammasane, Erin Chew – founder of Asian Australian Alliance and founder and creator of Miss Chu Tuckshop, Ms. Nahji Chu, DAWN’s International Women’s Day event was a great success.
It was an enlightening experience to work with a group so dedicated to empowering Australasians. Witnessing the success of this wonderful event was incredibly heart-warming and I hope to see DAWN continue to grow in the future.
