A series of evenings will be organised in states and territories all over Australia to promote networking opportunities for women. Dates, Sponsors and Partners for these events will be announced shortly. According to Caroline Castrillon: "Men get straight to the point; they know the goal. They tend to decide right away, with little to no small talk, whether they will work with you or not. Women are more focused on building long-term personal connections or friendships. Women often make contacts through people they know and tend to form smaller, deeper networks based on trust. They also frequently seek advice for both personal and professional needs. In contrast to men, women generally hesitate to ask for what they want out of a networking interaction. Instead, they think about what they can do for the other person first." Designed to create opportunity for Women to network professionally with confidence.
