  • 2021 Annual General Meeting

    WEL NSW is holding its AGM on Saturday 25 September at 2pm on zoom. Under WEL's Constitution the AGM will receive the Annual Report and the Treasurer's Report and conduct elections for membership of the WEL NSW Executive Committee, including office holders. A formal notice of the meeting will be sent to members in early September with the Agenda and 2020 AGM Minutes.  

    If you are a passionate WEL feminist with skills in one or a combination of communications, campaigning, political and policy analysis, fundraising, planning and risk assessment, administration, team leadership and management, think about  nominating for the WEL Executive for 2021-22.

    The nomination form is on the WEL website. Contact [email protected] if you would like to discuss.

    Please note the AGM is only available to financial MEMBERS.


    Following the AGM there will be a short break, and then at 2.55pm a panel discussion Violence against women: national plan, local challenges. Jozefa Sobski, AM, will chair the panel. Jozefa is National Convenor of WEL Australia and a longstanding advocate on eliminating violence against women. We hope you will join us for the discussion. 

    We have been very fortunate that Kittu Randhawa and Hayley Foster have agreed to speak.

    Kittu is the Founder and Project Lead of the Indian (Sub-Cont) Crisis and Support Agency, the first NGO for the Indian Subcontinent Community in Australia. Kittu is the subject matter expert in complex and cultural forms of family abuse and violence, specialising in dowry abuse.

    Hayley is the Chief Executive Officer of Rape and Domestic Violence Services Australia. Hayley has over 19 years’ experience in the community and justice sectors, principally in the areas of domestic and family violence policy, practice and law reform. Hayley is passionate about evidence to action and social justice reform.

    Following 10-15 minute talks by Kittu and Hayley, we will have questions and discussion. Both Kittu and Hayley are very knowledgeable and engaging speakers and the discussion is certain to be inspiring and informative.

    This panel discussion is available to all members of the community so please feel free to invite any others you may feel be interested in what is bound to be an engaging discussion.
