Event information

Join us this June for a special Female Founders event all about passion and purpose with Rae Knopik and Serina Bird! Over lunch, we will be discussing purpose-driven impact through innovation and entrepreneurship, plus the power of collaborating with women-led businesses.

Rae Knopik is a passionate feminist, not-for-profit founder, and author. She is the current Board President of the CBR Gals Network, a grassroots not-for-profit which she founded, that builds systems to foster an inclusive culture for all women in Canberra.

Serina Bird is a writer, podcaster, youtuber, money coach and above all, a frugalista. Author of The Joyful Frugalista and Founder of the Joyful Business Club, she helps people save money and live more meaningful lives through financial empowerment.

This will be a fantastic opportunity to connect with and hear from inspiring women in Canberra working on their businesses and passions.

This is an in-person event. Lunch will be provided.



This event is a woman-focused event that intends an inclusive definition of women. We welcome trans women, nonbinary, gender non-conforming, and anyone who identifies as a woman in a way that is significant to them.
