Tuesday 12th February, 11:30 am – 2pm
Cairns Convention Centre
What a way to start the year! Our February 2019 lunch will feature special guest speaker, Rochelle Courtenay.
Rochelle Courtenay is the Founder and Managing Director of Share the Dignity, an Australia Women’s Charity which began in 2015.
The title Rochelle is most proud of, however, is ‘Pad Lady’. This title came about and stuck while she collected over 1.1 Million packets of pads and tampons across Australia over three years. She learned of homeless women going without basic sanitary items during their menstrual cycle. Most noteworthy, Rochelle decided the question was not “Why is no one doing anything” but rather “ What’s stopping me from doing something?”
First of all, in March 2015 Rochelle took matters in to her own hands collecting sanitary items within her local community and distributing to local shelters. As a result, a simple idea of giving dignity to women, Share the Dignity has grown into a national charity, bringing dignity to homeless, at-risk and women experiencing domestic violence through distribution of sanitary items and funding funerals of those killed as a result of domestic violence. The charity has over 3,000 volunteers Australia wide, and most noteworthy, provides multiple initiatives aimed at giving dignity to women.
