Why you needn't be afraid of Women or Twitter

On Wednesday 9th April, the Rotary Club of Sydney will be hosting a special breakfast with a presentation by Club Member, Claire Moffat.

 

While the term 'tech head' is usually reserved for men, Clarie Moffat has knocked the idea firmly on the head by starting Australia's only technology site for women, Connected Women, and it's a big hit. Of course being CEO of Connected Media, which is responsible for Australia's leading online news service for the consumer electronics industry Connected Australia, would have helped.

 

Spanning a publishing career of 30 years, Claire has created and managed a number of leading magazines, electronic newsletters and websites across various industries, but Connected Women is closest to her heart. Her insight into the women's tech market niche is sought after by many in the industry and she relays her knowledge and expertise through a range of online editorials, her blog and presentations and events within the business and technology industry.

 

Sydney Rotary Club's Homeless Project

The Rotary Club of Sydney is supporting the marginalised and homeless in Inner City Sydney.

Starting with the creation of transforming the unused basement of William Booth House in Albion Street, Surry Hills the Club will create a centre of hope for many in Sydney trying so hard to put their lives back together.

On completion the centre will become a key part of the Salvation Army’s future services by establishing meeting and training spaces. It will be a facility offering programmes for people who are socially excluded and marginalised enabling them to develop a sense of belonging and rebuild skills for a new future.

This Centre is part of the integrated and strategic approach to homelessness in the inner city of Sydney now being taken by the Inner City Homelessness Coalition of five front line welfare agencies.  The Rotary Club of Sydney welcomes the opportunity to directly partner with The Salvation Army to support its part in the solution.

The Rotary Life Skills Centre is due to be up and running in the first part of 2014 with an official opening in late May to coincide with the Rotary International Convention in Sydney.

About the Rotary Club of Sydney

The Rotary Club of Sydney was the first Rotary Club in New South Wales, chartered on 7 May 1921.  Our Club was established, along with the Rotary Club of Melbourne, following a visit by representatives from North America who came to Australia with the purpose of establishing Rotary in Australia.  There are now 1,164 Clubs established in Australia each of which can link its origins to either the Rotary Club of Melbourne or the Rotary Club of Sydney.

We meet every Tuesday at 12.30 pm for lunch, fellowship, networking and to listen to a stellar line-up of guest speakers.

In its 90 years the Rotary Club of Sydney has raised millions of dollars for local charities and has established what are now prominent enterprises. 

In particular, the Rotary Club of Sydney founded the New South Wales Society for Crippled Children which is now known as the Northcott Society, established the Police & Citizens Boys' Clubs in New South Wales, established the Mt Eliza Executive School of Business now within the business school of the University of Melbourne and also established International House, a residential college for university students.
