Vegan Girl Power Conference Launches in Sydney

Powerful vegan women come together to inspire a new generation of ethical leaders in a global series of events.

The Plant-Powered Women Leadership Conference Series (PPWLC) will begin March 17 in Sydney, Australia. The one-day event is organized by author Kathy Divine and will feature several prominent vegan women—including former CEO of The Vegan Society UK Jasmijn De Boo, journalist Katrina Fox, psychologist Clare Mann, and nutritionist Robyn Chuter—who wish to inspire young, compassionate female leaders. “There are so many talented, intelligent vegan women in the world, but they are not always given the opportunity to speak,” Divine said, “so I have created this series of events that say to these women: ‘this is your stage, this is your moment in the spotlight. Your views, your visions are important, and they are much needed. Speak and be heard.’” During the event, young professionals will be trained in topics such as operating a vegan business, overcoming adversity, and running a non-profit organization. “I can think of no one better suited to being a leader than a vegan woman who has all of the ethics and compassionate grounding that a great leader should have,” Divine said. In the future, Divine plans to host similar PPWLC across Australia and, eventually, worldwide.
