be inspired - celebrating women

Be inspired at an evening celebrating women in our community on Wednesday 16 November at Swinburne University.

Be Inspired is a free event, organised by Yarra Ranges council and Swinburne University and will feature guest speaker Jacqueline Pascarl (nee Gillespie) – Australian author, TV personality, parents’ rights advocate and humanitarian aid worker.

Jacqueline will share her journey since her former husband, a Malaysian prince, abducted her children in 1992.

Jacqueline will be joined by a panel of inspiring local women including 2010 Young Citizen of the Year Award recipient Fiona Bilton, Koha Community Café Coordinator Suyin Chan and myself as the Yarra Ranges Women's Charter Champion.

Fiona has a great passion to help children and young people who have a parent with a mental illness. She works tirelessly to create greater awareness of mental health issues for young people, parents and families.

Suyin is one of the driving forces behind the very succesful Koha Community Cafe. Koha is a not-for-profit social enterprise. The basic principle is that anyone can have a healthy vegetarian meal and pay what they think the meal is worth or what they can afford.

The panellists will share their own experiences and advice on overcoming challenges to achieve your goals.

Be Inspired is at Swinburne University on Wednesday 16 November from 5.30pm.

Places for the free event are limited and bookings are essential, call 9294 6106 or email

It will be a terrific night, I look forward to seeing you there.
