Resilience in the age of COVID - Older Women's Take on Poverty & The Way Forward

Oct 15
Join the conversation on what older women have to say about the impact of COVID-19, and what we need to focus on as a country to deal with its fallout.

Prior to COVID-19, older women were the fastest growing cohort amongst the homeless and the situation has not improved with the pandemic. Instead, this recession will also hit older women hard. Hear from:

Ronni Kahn, Founder of OzHarvest

Liz McEntyre, Aboriginal Official Visitor, NSW Inspector of Custodial Services

Elaine Paton, Writer/Performer

Beverly Baker, Chair of Older Women’s Network, NSW

Moderated by: Caroline Baum, Writer, Broadcaster & OWN NSW Ambassador

Women are traditional spinners - of tales, of cloth, or many fine things. May we in OWN continue to spin strong webs of support which create a safety net for older women's emotional and physical wellbeing; and create a sling from which to catapult into the wider community older women's aspirations for a better world.
