2020 was tough, really tough, so this IWD will be centred around fun and inspiration. We were all challenged in different ways to cope with changes beyond our control. In a way, the Pandemic has shown us what we can achieve when we have a common purpose.

The 2021 IWD theme is #ChooseToChallenge. Read more
A challenged world is an alert world.
Individually, we're all responsible for our thoughts and actions - all day, every day.
We can choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequity. We can choose to seek out and celebrate women's achievements.
Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
From challenge comes change, so let's all choose to challenge.

About our IWD Luncheon

Anybody and everybody are welcome to come along and listen to our inspiring speakers and connect with some amazing people in our community. You will receive a champagne cocktail or mocktail on arrival, with the Cupitt's Estate Chefs creating a bold menu, packed with flavour and inspired by the beautiful produce made and grown at Cupitt's Estate. The full bar is available for other drink purchases on the day.

Our line-up of speakers will include:
