Women’s Leadership Forum

On the 15th of December the Ladies of Mongolia Fellowship Program was hosted by the Zonta Club of Brisbane Breakfast for a Women’s Leadership Forum. A round table discussion facilitated by Janette Clonan and Petrina Fraccaro (ZBB’s Vice President), the afternoon aimed to enhance the leadership capabilities of women leaders in Mongolia.

The Fellows were brought to Australia thanks to a DFAT development grant, and the Forum was part of a broader program hosted by QUT.

This year we are aiming to assemble 12,000 kits vital to the women in regional areas of Papua New Guinea and other developing countries. Each year we are lucky enough to have friends, family, community and corporate groups help pack birthing kits for third world countries. It is a fantastic day full of fun, laughter and new friends.

Read more about this year’s event on the official website.
How can you help?

The more the merrier so why not get a group of friends or colleagues together and make it a fun social event! Further event details, such as assembling instructions, public transport or details on our Birthing Kit Preparation morning which is held on EKKA day, will be forwarded closer to the date.

The success of this special day is driven by the regular support and sponsorship of so many friends, Zontians and the Brisbane community. You can help make a difference.  We look forward to seeing you all again and welcoming new volunteers to this special event.ZBK 2016 - Cover

Madonna King is an award-winning journalist, author and commentator. She has long been known as the voice of current affairs in Queensland, heading the top rating current affairs program on the ABC for six years, and winning several national ABC awards for her journalism.


Madonna’s fifth, and latest book, is a biography of federal treasurer Joe Hockey. Last year she authored the biography of Australian of the Year and inventor of the cervical cancer vaccine, Ian Frazer.

Her experiences allow Madonna to provide a fascinating yet entertaining keynote about the challenges and lessons she has learnt from the women she has interviewed along the way.
