Older Women’s Network 27th National Conference: "HEAR US ROAR! Ending The Invisibility of Older Women".

Join us for a lively discussion on the issues that are important to older women. What does it take to get the voices of older women heard? 

  • Opening Address: Professor Gillian Triggs

  • Keynote Address: Anne Connolly

  • Followed by two panel discussions, with both panels facilitated by Caroline Baum.

Panel 1 and Q&A: Representation & Invisibility of Older Women

Older women have a wealth of knowledge, expertise, and life experiences that can contribute to crafting more informed and equitable policies. What happens when policies are designed without including the needs of older women? Where are older women in the media? In the design of aged care? And what about older First Nations women? What happens when it is the state which is implicated in the abuse of older women?

  • Dixie Link-Gordon, Program Coordinator, Aboriginal Women's Advisory Network

  • Anne Connolly, Journalist, ABC

  • Kathy Eagar, Foundation Director, Australian Health Services Research Institute, Adj Professor UNSW & QUT

  • Jane Waterhouse, Managing Director, Slingshot Media

Panel 2 and Q&A: How Services Can Better Respond to the Needs of Older Women

What can we do better to ensure that services can better respond to the needs of older women? What are the needs of older women in the CALD community? Why is homelessness the fate of too many older women?

  • Unis Goh, Life Member, Australasian Housing Institute

  • Kittu Randhawa, Founder, Indian Sub-Continent Crisis and Support Agency

  • Sally Stevenson, Executive Director, Illawara Women's Health Centre

  • Beverly Baker, President, National Older Women's Network

This will be followed by the National and NSW AGM and conference dinner. 

We hope you can share the day with us and work towards better outcomes for older women in Australia.
