About the event
This is the time for women, for much needed truth–telling and bravery. So, we invite you into the inner sanctum of M4R to join this guided narrative with four brave and beautiful women sharing their individual struggle to be part of a healthier and more inclusive society, and the importance of continuously challenging limited belief systems, their privilege and capabilities.
Be part of what will be a radiant gathering of soul sisters in celebration of International Women’s Day. Take your seat at the table with Carmen Lee Platt, Veronica Nou, Leonie Dyer and Dulce Muñoz, who have all made lasting contributions to Australian charity M4R.
Carmen Lee Platt is founder of ‘The Generous and the Grateful Inc’, who’s mission is to connect generous everyday Australians donating essential household items with people fleeing danger; so that they may create a safe warm home, from which they can rebuild their lives and have a better future. generousandgrateful.com.au
