RIN is reaching for the sky this International Women’s Day – AFLW style!

Gold Coast Suns CEO & AFLW players to star at annual business lunch

The launch of this year’s Australian Rules Women’s Football League will provide a fitting backdrop when the Resource Industry Network hosts its annual International Women’s Day Business Lunch on March 6th.  

As the keynote speaker for the popular Mackay event, Gold Coast Suns Chief Executive Officer Mark Evans will continue the important conversation around diversity in the workplace to guests attending the event.

Mark has played a big role in the rise of women’s AFL and will discuss why women are so important to the Gold Coast Suns football club, the challenges they have faced, and what they’ve learnt along the way.

Alongside Mark will be stars of the Gold Coast Suns Women’s team who will join in the conversation. Facilitating the event will be TV and media personality Liz Cantor.
