BRIEF BIO OF ONE OF OUR SPEAKERS FEATURING:
STEPHANIE WOOLLARD SEVEN WOMEN NEPAL
Above STEPHANIE WOOLLARD with DG John Glassford
Rotary Peace Scholar & Member of the Rotary Club of Melbourne
- Nominee for Australian of the Year 2016
- Rotary International Peace Fellow, Recipient of the Rotary International Responsible Business Award presented at the United Nations in NY in 2016
- Moral Fairground’s National ‘Most Ethical Enterprise Award 2014’, La Trobe Uni. Young Achiever Alumni of the Year Award 2016
- Masters in Peace & Conflict Research from Uppsala University, Sweden
Stephanie Woollard began Seven Women at 22 after meeting seven disabled women working in a tin shed in Kathmandu.
These seven women were struggling to make a living in the face of harsh discrimination. With her last $200, Steph paid for a trainer to teach the women how to produce products for sale locally and abroad – and Seven Women was born.
Since 2006 Steph has built up the Seven Women team and launched an Australian arm for fundraising and a sales channel for our ever growing operation in Nepal.
12 years after her meeting in a tin shed that started it all, over 5,000 women have been educated, trained and employed by Seven Women.
Seven Women is empowering Nepali women, transforming their lives and their communities.
RI CONVENTION 2019
Join us in Hamburg for the Rotary Convention! Don’t miss the early registration deadline on 15 December.
Bunnings OH&S Onions on the bottom!!!
I’m aware that Bunnings have slipped in some cruel standards for how we serve our sausages, which is causing some of our long-standing ‘expert’ BBQers some angst!
I have been asked to make an executive ruling as to whether we need to obey these harrowing standards which are being imposed upon us. From what I understand, Bunnings have, because of OHS issues, proclaimed that we must put the onions on the bottom of the sandwich with the sausage on top.
More info available just message me!
DG Sue Hayward D9675
Reports Suggest. Local Bunnings Warehouse has suspended operations due to a near fatal onion slipping incident.
Multiple rescue helicopters were called in to help local chippie Dazza when he slipped a little bit on an onion but recomposed himself like a champion.
Bunnings elf in an apron and manager Trevor said “we aren’t taking chances with Dazza … it could have been 10 times worse”.
Dazza can be seen in the photo being winched to safety and is currently on route to Westmead Hospital for scans and a hug. Dazza could be heard shouting “ Mate I’m alright it was just a bit of a slip and I was more upset about the lack of BBQ sauce.”
Local Orange RSPCA have taken Dazza’s kelpie who witnessed the incident to the local animal shelter for psychological tests as the animal showed signs of stress.
Two other people were flown out in separate helicopters due to gluten intolerance.
Several vegans were also counselled at the scene as they found it too traumatic.
Local member Andrew Whizz will petition parliament for an “Onion Buy Back Scheme” on Monday sighting the potential for onions to be a major cause of injury to the general public shopping for hardware. 😂
