Diversity advocate Amna Karra-Hassan will be guest speaker at this year’s 11th annual 2018 Women in Print (WiP) forum events for women working in the print media industry.

 The five-event series will take place around the country in August, beginning in Western Australia before events in South Australia, Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.

Karra-Hassan is an activist and advocate for diversity, inclusion and gender parity. She works for the Australian Federal Police in the Reform, Culture and Standards portfolio, which is responsible for engaging the workforce in cultural change. She is also the founder and president of the Auburn Giants Australian Football Club and has pioneered programs for women of minority communities in Western Sydney.

“Amna uses her influence to change the conversation on gender, culture, faith and representation, and will share her inspirational story through adversity, hope and achieving the impossible,” says event organiser and NSW Women in Print patron Karen Goldsmith, general manager of Visual Connections. “She shares her experiences on collaborating with community leaders, small business owners, local government, traditional and social media and thought leaders. She shares how she engages in the story telling process to help others overcome adversity, build confidence and resilience, and lead with perseverance and courage.”

Since its inception, not-for-profit Women in Print has attracted a diverse audience comprising women in senior management, sales and marketing through to those working in technical capacities on the shop floor. More than 3500 women have so far participated in the regular events.

This year’s events will be held at:
