Our first event

Using social media to create change

The first event in this series, ‘Using Social Media to Create Change’, will be an opportunity to hear from young Indian and Australian leaders, founders and changemakers who use Instagram, TikTok, Facebook and YouTube to challenge the system. These three young movers and shakers all share a strong bias toward action, smashing the patriarchy and disrupting the status quo.
