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.

“Our business is about making it easy for people to make environmentally friendly choices. We are looking to expand into new overseas markets and the ECA have been a huge help in this endeavour. The ECA have given us introductions to key businesses that can help us in the markets we are looking at, and their workshops and seminars on topics relevant to exporting were extremely useful. All up, our association with the ECA has been a great asset to Fruity Sacks.”Become a Member
