​A former television personality is now empowering women after leaving the small screen.

#MeToo advocate and World Vision ambassador, Tracey Spicer, will be guest speaker at the Celebrating Women in Business event on Friday 8 March, as part of Canterbury-Bankstown’s International Women’s Day (IWD) celebrations.

The veteran journalist has spearheaded the #MeToo movement in Australia, creating NOW Australia, a not-for-profit organisation aimed at helping anyone who has been sexually harassed in the workplace, and successfully advocated for the world’s first national inquiry into sexual harassment in the workplace, held by the Australian Human Rights Commission.

"NOW Australia has just submitted some important recommendations to this inquiry," Ms Spicer said.

"For too many years, women’s experiences, perspectives and challenges have been sidelined by broader society. IWD is a unique opportunity to thrust these issues onto the front pages of our newspapers, adding momentum to a global movement towards equality."

At the event, hosted by City of Canterbury Bankstown, Liverpool City Council and Bankstown Airport, Ms Spicer will focus on ensuring Western Sydney is positioned as a safe, inclusive and attractive place for everyone to live, work and visit.

For more information, or to register, call 9707 9228.

Council will also be hosting a second event, its second Local Women of the Year Awards on Thursday 28 March.

Nominations, which close on 8 March, are open in seven categories:

  • Woman of the Year;
  • Young Woman of the Year (18-35 years as of 31 December 2018); 
  • Community Woman of the Year; 
  • Local Sports Woman of the Year; 
  • Woman Activism Award ;
  • Creative Arts and Cultural Woman of the Year; and 
  • Woman Hip Hop Activist of the Year.

Mayor Khal Asfour encouraged the community to acknowledge the hard-working and selfless women in our City.

"We want to hear about the women in your lives that have contributed to society, demonstrated leadership and or helped others," he said.

Nominations can be made online.​
