Enabling women’s economic security in 2022 ... and beyond
A special International Women's Day edition of BSL Talks
At both a national and state level, there is a growing awareness of the need to foster women’s economic security.

Join Dr Dina Bowman and our expert panel as they discuss what’s needed to tackle the stubborn issues that undermine women’s economic security in Australia.
