2018 September 13 Meeting Flyer
The club is delighted to welcome Suzanne Hunt as our guest speaker to the September meeting. In 2017, Suzie was the first woman to be elected by her peers to the position of President of the WA Chapter of the Australian Institute of Architects. She will share with us her work with the Australian Institute of Architect’s National Council’s Gender Equity Taskforce. Come and hear about her role as a formal mentor of the recently established networking group #WorkWomenWisdom Forum for women in the design profession.
We will also have the opportunity to meet Janinne Gliddon, the Zonta Club of Perth’s District 23 Area 3 Woman of Achievement nominee for 2018. Janinne, a senior Health Promotion Officer, is the championing force behind Australia’s first hospital-based Aboriginal Volunteer Program at King Edward Memorial Hospital. “The goal is that Aboriginal patients at our hospital will feel more supported in a culturally appropriate way, which we hope contributes to optimum health outcomes for mum and baby.”

Today the Zonta Club of Perth hosted a lunch at a member’s home for our Ishar ladies (refugee and migrant women). The women come from a variety of countries and cultures and the friendship between members and the women has grown over recent years. The club continues to be inspired by these magnificent women.
14 June 2018: The ZONTA club of Perth celebrates Judy Gorton‘s tenure as District Governor. It has been our absolute pleasure to watch her thrive in this role and we know she will do us proud going forward at the upcoming Yokohama convention. Thanks for being a wonderful District Governor!

At the April meeting members were inspired to hear the personal stories of Dr Glenda Kickett. Glenda, who is a social worker and senior lecturer at UWA, has received many accolades and awards for her service to the community including being inducted into the WA Women’s Hall of Fame. A Ballardong Wadjuk woman, Glenda is proud of her heritage and shared stories of wildflowers, heart, respect, love of country and netball. As Chair of NAIDOC she helped pioneer the Miss NAIDOC Perth program to give young women opportunities for leadership and development. Members appreciated Glenda’s warmth, generosity and humour in sharing her journey so far. Pictured: Sandra Burns, Dr Glenda Kickett and Lind Higgie.
