The ‘Voyage to Leadership: Pasifika Young Women’s Symposium’ embarks on a transformative journey, inviting every woman to not merely be a passenger but a navigator on her path to leadership. The symposium opens with an inclusive celebration of Pasifika and Aboriginal traditional welcome. With a focus on shared wisdom, the aim is to empower every young Pasifika woman and guests. Through focused panels and plenaries, it intertwines Leadership, Cross-cultural Experiences, Education, Career Advancement, and Wellbeing.

In a world where the acknowledgment of women’s empowerment is acknowledged but not fully realized, this symposium, orchestrated by the Young Pacific Women Collective (YPWC) in collaboration with the Pacific Women’s Professional Business Network (PWPBN), stands as a beacon of celebration, empowerment, and education for young Pasifika women. It serves as the convergence point where cross-cultural appreciation and women’s empowerment intersect and flourish.

Echoing the 2024 International Women’s Day theme ‘Count Her In: Accelerating gender equality through economic empowerment,’ this symposium illuminates the path toward advancing gender equality through economic empowerment’. As highlighted by Simone Clarke, CEO of UN Women Australia, economic empowerment not only upholds women’s rights and gender equality but also propels communities toward prosperity and abundance.”
