Mayor Gillian Aldridge will again be hosting the City of Salisbury's International Women's Day function. In 2020 it returns as a cocktail evening with wonderful MC’s Hayley and Lauren from Adelady, and Guest Speaker Katrina Webb. It will be hosted at the Salisbury Community hub on Thursday 5 March 2020 from 7pm.

Right now is a great and important time in history to do everything possible to help forge a more gender-balanced world. Women have come a long way, yet there’s still more to be achieved. The 2020 campaign theme #EACHFOREQUAL is a call-to-action for actively choosing to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women’s achievements.

Guest Speaker-  Katrina Webb OAM

Katrina Webb is a Paralympic Track & Field star, whose athletic journey was turned upside down by a cerebral palsy diagnosis during training at the Australian Institute of Sport. During training at the Institute, a right sided weakness that Katrina had since birth and for many years she had spent hiding, was labelled Cerebral Palsy. Katrina’s ability to pursue netball at a national level was in jeopardy. Despite this, a twist of fate presented a previously unseen opportunity. Katrina was eligible for the Paralympic games. Her weakness had become her greatest strength. Katrina is an advocate for self-acceptance and determination through her own lived experiences. Katrina is a multiple podium-winning athlete, and strives to help others perform at their best. This is achieved through her founding position at ‘Silver 2 Gold High-Performance Solutions’. Due to her own experience in dealing with a disability and a desire to help other, Katrina is a passionate humanitarian. She currently organises leadership treks to Nepal including Everest Basecamp, raising funds for the health, education and protection of children in Nepal. We will hear about Katrina’s life experience, and what International Womens Day means to her.
