Y Connect

Women of Wisdom Speed Mentoring Event

In June of 2018, the Y Connect program held the ‘Women of Wisdom’ Speed Networking Event.

The event connected and empowered women living with disability by building networks through a 2 hour speed mentoring evening to explore, connect and provide opportunities to ask questions on employment and career development while meeting with other women who share similar experiences.

This event included:

  • Q&A Panel
  • Conversations and advice from established women with expertise in areas such as

Community / Allied Health
Business / HR
Advocacy / Public Speaking


Mentor guest speakers for this event were;  Kelly Vincent, Debbie Norman, Jane Brzezinski, Jemma Taylor,  Sarah Bastian and Raphael Murphy.

Photos of this fantastic event can be viewed on the YWCA Facebook Page.
