After 10years of Inc. it's time for a refresh!

Over the last 10 years we have grown with the resource sector to advocate for women, not just in the NT, we have a seat at WiMnet national forum, and also globally as a foundation member of the IWiM Alliance.We felt that in order to continue to grow our representation we needed to ensure we found ways to increase our connection and services to our members.

It is more difficult to rule yourself than to rule a city.
