Own it: Women's financial empowerment is a free seminar for women, focusing on promoting women’s independence and decision-making through financial empowerment.

We are offering this seminar in two locations.

Research shows that women face unique challenges when it comes to financial security. This session will give you the opportunity to better understand your current financial situation, establish goals, avoid the traps and empower you to take control.

Our experienced financial experts from UniSuper will provide information to help you navigate the world of budgeting, borrowing and saving. An interactive panel will share their experiences on what drives their individual choices in saving for retirement, their experiences of financial abuse, and the traps of 'buy now, pay later' schemes.

16 Days of Activism

This seminar is part of the 16 Days of Activism Program, an international campaign dedicated to eliminating gender-based violence, in particular, the elimination of violence against women.
