Australia's favourite cook, Maggie Beer!

Maggie Beer, will be a guest speaker at the NRWC Conference Dinner at Parliament House on Tuesday, 19 February 2013. The Dinner is a collaborative partnership with the Canberra Centenary Celebrations and the contribution of all women to the fabric of Australian life will be celebrated.

With numerous jobs in a variety of fields appearing on Maggie’s work history in her early years, it wasn’t until she moved to the Barossa Valley in 1973 and started growing grapes and breeding pheasants that her career began in the world of food and spans farming, food production, exporting, food writing and television presenting.

First two speakers!
Liz Davenport, leading Australian fashion designer and businesswoman will deliver a keynote address at the conference. Having been involved in the fashion industry as a designer, manufacturer and retailer for more than 35 years, Liz is about to publish her first book and is one of only five Australian designers to receive the highest fashion accolade - a Grand Award from the Fashion Industries of Australia.

The second keynote speaker to be announced is Commissioner, Elizabeth Broderick, who has been the Australian Sex Discrimination Commissioner since 2007. During her term she has been committed to improving gender equality through her advocacy in preventing violence against women and sexual harassment, improving lifetime economic security for women, balancing paid work and unpaid caring responsibilities, promoting women’s representation in leadership and strengthening gender equality laws, monitoring and agencies.
