GLENRAC continues a proud tradition with the 2023 Rural Women’s Day

10th Oct 2023

GLENRAC has held Rural Women’s Day Events since 2013, attracting women from across our district to gather, learn, share, and connect. Each year GLENRAC seeks guest speakers to inform and inspire those attending to connect with like-minded women, widen their social circles and support networks, access the available mental
and physical health service providers and support or create small businesses.
In 2022 the event coincided with the 29th Rural Women’s Gathering over two days and relaunching of the NSW Rural Women’s Network, prompting the keynote speaker, the Honorable Bronnie Taylor MLC (NSW Minister for Women, Regional Health and Mental Health) to announce: ‘Rural women… we’re back!’
This year’s event will be held at the Glen Innes Showgrounds Tearooms on Friday October 13th and will include presentations and displays from local support agencies and businesses.
The NSW Minister for Women, the Hon Jodie Harrison MP, is unable to attend in person so her staff are preparing a pre-recorded keynote address, especially for the event.
GLENRAC CEO Kylie Falconer said the day will jam-packed, with presentations by Jess Walker, a Physiotherapist who specialises in women’s health and two solicitors from North and North West Community Legal Service talking about wills, executors and power of attorney.
Other presenters include the well-known and respected women’s health experts, Christine Connor from HealthWise and Margie Burns from Narrabri Community Health and Rural Adversity Mental Health Program’s Letitia Cross.
“We’re very excited to offer something new for 2023, in the form of a performance and presentation by Shimmy in the Glen,” Kylie said. “They will share their joy of dance and raise awareness about women’s support services.”
The $10 entry fee also includes delicious catering, a barista coffee voucher and a gift bag valued at $30.
