All funds raised from this Equal Futures Project event will go to the Hunter Women's Centre to provide services to improve the health and wellbeing of the women of the Hunter.

We would like to thank our Event Partner, Port Waratah Coal Services, for their generous support.

When one woman travelled around to schools in Australia in 2013 and asked young girls what they thought an entrepreneur was, the majority of them had no idea. The very few that did answered, “a man”. Walking away from that determined to create change and opportunity for women in entrepreneurship; Jo Burston was that one woman, and now the Founder of Rare Birds.
