Organisers of the popular Thriving Women Conference (TW2024) are inviting abstract submissions to present at this year’s event to be held at the Adelaide Hills Convention Centre, Hahndorf from 12 -13 August 2024. TW2024 is proudly hosted by WoTL (Women Together Learning).

TW2024 Conference Convenor, Toni Duka, has announced the conference theme, Be the change, will take centre stage, resonating with the vibrant and dynamic community of women connected through agriculture.

“The expectation of presentations is that they are largely based around “Toolbox Talks”, the idea being that whilst the audience is presented content, they are also given something to add to their “toolbox” to take home and put into practice,” explains Ms Duka.

 “We are providing the opportunity for presenters to engage the audience showcasing some key tools and approaches to help individuals gain the necessary capabilities to navigate change effectively, which requires a versatile toolkit that encompasses both practical skills and a resilient mindset.”

“We invite presenters to engage, reflect, and contribute to a conference experience rich in knowledge, inspiration, story-telling and collaborative growth. Presenting at a Thriving Women Conference is a wonderful way to showcase your subject matter expertise, share skills and knowledge, it also provides the opportunity to more closely connect and engage with up to 200 delegates.”

Toolbox Talk presenters are not limited to female presenters. All genders are encouraged to apply. Presentations are 50 minutes in duration, including question time.

Abstract submissions close on March 18 2024. Submissions can be made at
