Celebrating Women in International Business
This event has now ended.
As proud sponsors of the Women In International Business category at this year's 30th WA Industry & Export Awards , the Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade (WA) invites you to a celebration of women in our state making their mark in global business.
In keeping with the awards' 30th Anniversary, we will reflect on the last three decades; how far we have come and what still needs to be done for the success of the next generation of business women. Our guest speaker Tracey Horton AO, will share insights from her own journey and a panel of past WA award winners will discuss their experiences during a Q&A discussion.

"In 2014 Vekta Automation became involved in the Export Awards and started to get a better understanding about the role of the Export Council of Australia. After attending a seminar in Perth in February 2019 the decision was instantly made and we signed up the next day. A decision we should have made 5 years earlier. For Vekta, the information, expertise and networking opportunities that the ECA provides has been valuable. It is reassuring knowing that there are experienced and knowledgeable people we can turn to when advice is needed."
