new look, new feel

THE CANBERRA GAL

Partnering with Ellen Rosalie Designs, we are proud to share our new logo that we believe captures THE Canberra Gal so well.

UPDATE ON OUR EVENTS

We are seeing Canberra open back up. We’re so excited that, in anticipation for further eases of restrictions, we are planning our first couple of face to face events…

PILATES FOR FEMINISM

We’ve teamed up with Liz Brimage (@newstory.movement) for a self-care session because we believe that self care means giving the world the best of you instead of what’s left of you.

VIRTUAL HAPPY HOUR HIGHLIGHTS

(…as featured in the Canberra Times)

Last weekend, we had our first virtual event, and it was a huge success! We had over 20 brands contribute to goodie bags that our Board hand-delivered to 10 gals for a happy hour session we held on Saturday evening.
 
While we don’t do what we do for publicity, it sure means a lot to our small organisation to receive this level of support and recognition from the Canberra community.

UPDATE: SOCIALS

Although the best way to stay up-to-date with The Network is through our newsletter, we’ve added a few initiatives to help you stay connected to other gals in the Network.
  1. The “Current Initiatives” Instagram story highlight lets you know what’s going on NOW.
  2. We’re on LinkedIn to connect women-run businesses through a business lens.
  3. We’re on Twitter to share the latest news in gender equity and how that affects you, Gal.
  4. We’re also posting quite a bit on Facebook.
