Calling the NAWO network – the NAWO VIC Committee and Australia Post invite you to their inspiring national hybrid event – women in operations and the power of NOW.

We are delighted to be facilitating this first ever multi-state, hybrid NAWO event in collaboration with Australia Post.

We will discuss the origins of NOW, the collective response to this initiative and its roadmap for the future. You will also get a chance to join the conversation and ask questions during the Q&A.
