4EB Women’s Luncheon

June 30, 2023

On Saturday, 23rd June 23 our Operations Lead, Pule Salafai together with Mama Salafai, attended yet another Women’s Luncheon at 4EB, a prominent community radio station. The luncheon aimed at empowering and celebrating women from diverse backgrounds. The event, held at the station’s headquarters, brought together a remarkable group of women, fostering networking opportunities, and encouraging discussions on various topics.

4EB aims to organise four luncheons annually collaborating, forming partnerships for women’s empowerment in Qld. The luncheon served as a platform for women to connect, share experiences, and gain insights from accomplished speakers and professionals. Attendees included women from all walks of life, ranging from entrepreneurs and artists to activists and community leaders.

The event commenced with a warm welcome from the 4EB team, emphasizing the importance of women’s empowerment and their contributions to society. The gathering featured an array of inspiring guest speakers who shared their stories, challenges, services and triumphs.

Four new community services were in attendance at the luncheon.  One of the notable speakers, Lisa from ECCQ – Ethnic Community Council Qld, specialising in support services for Women from CALD communities. Another Katrina who is part of Women’s Empowerment Lead from Social Policy Group Logan, specialising in Family and Domestic Violence. The Director from Multigroup Gold Coast specialising in community partnerships, information and referral services in the GC area, was also in attendance, together with Indian group leader, who is also a Bollywood Dancer recently located to Brisbane from NZ offering Rhythm’s Dance Group.

The panel comprised successful women of our community, each with a unique background and expertise. They shared practical tips, personal anecdotes, strategies and services they provide.

In addition to the speakers and panel discussion, the luncheon featured interactive activities and networking sessions. Attendees had the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals, exchange ideas, and forge new professional relationships. The event created a supportive environment, fostering collaboration and encouraging women to uplift and empower one another.

4EB, as an inclusive community radio station, has a long-standing commitment to promoting diversity and providing a platform for underrepresented voices. The women’s luncheon exemplified the station’s dedication to supporting and celebrating women from all backgrounds, fostering an environment where their stories and experiences can be heard and appreciated.
