About this Event

As Y Connect comes to the end of it’s current funding in Adelaide, we celebrate 3 years of the project with a final evening of connection, networking and conversations.

Join us for a panel on the topic of ‘Public Speaking with Impact’. Facilitated by previous Project Officer Belle Owen this panel will feature women with disabilities that have a story, tips or advice to share on promoting yourself, your story or your work through public speaking.

Full panel and bios to be released soon. Panel members include:
