WIM WA Masterclass Series

Women in Media WA is pleased to introduce a new initiative – the Masterclass Series. These small group intensive workshops will be run throughout the year for women working in the media to delve deep into relevant topics to enhance their professional roles.

Our inaugural workshop, ‘Tales and Tips from the Road’ will be delivered by media veterans Victoria Laurie and Marnie McKimmie and will provide important advice and useful tips about safety and personal conduct to reduce the risk for women as they go about their work.

There have been significant changes to our work environment and many women in the media today find themselves working alone, often in high-risk situations. So, how do we adapt our work habits to ensure we are not unduly exposed to risk or unsafe behaviours?

Places are strictly limited, so BOOK NOW to avoid missing out.

When: Friday, March 22, 2019, 2pm – 5pm
Where: Cannings Purple Boardroom, Brookfield Place Tower 2, 123 St Georges Tce, Perth
Cost: $25 (Refreshments will be provided)

Special thanks to Cannings Purple for their support of this event.
