Join us on the night

The awards gala is where the community comes together – providing a great opportunity to network with industry leaders.

Despite external challenges in 2020, we’re determined to keep the tradition alive by hosting a memorable virtual experience to connect, educate and empower the community through these challenging times.

To keep the awards short and sharp we’ve reduced down to seven key categories, have an international keynote, a few VIP cameos and as always, some downright hilarious MCs to keep you entertained.

Join us on the night

Here’s how the (virtual) gala will run…

3:30pm (AEST)

Event kickoff! We’re encouraging teams to get together in person or virtually, to celebrate this illustrious event which represents resilience and excellence. After a ‘welcome to country’ and introduction from our MC, we’ll hear from our international keynote as she shares her personal journey spanning 3 continents and a few career changes.

4:00PM (AEST)

We will then announce the award finalists and winners over the next hour as our virtual guests enjoy a few celebratory Friday afternoon beverages . There’ll be a few surprises and a lot of excitement with special guests (including Leanne Kemp, Founder & CEO of Everledger!) throughout this unprecedented event production.

5:00 PM (AEST)

Event close but we very much encourage that the celebrations continue with you and your teams!

Can men attend this virtual event?2020-07-29T20:14:48+10:00

Yes absolutely! We love having male champions of change attend our events whether that’s in person or online. Our community is pro-diversity and pro-equality… we’d say almost 30% of our community is made up of male champions of change and our Women in Digital Advisory Board is reflective of that (66% female representation, 33% male representation).
