Last week the WiS team, along with The Window Guy and our amazing supporter sponsors (Strata Community Insurance, BPS Strata Maintenance, Watermark Services, DEA Lawyers, Diagnostech, Express Glass, Stratafy and Solutions IE) descended on The Ivy Penthouse to celebrate. We said cheers to each other, our achievements and our woes, as we said goodbye to 2023 and look to all that 2024 has to bring. The pink up-lighting, the awesome DJ, the delicious cocktails. What a night! Check out the photos on our Facebook page here.

What makes Women in Strata events different? We focus every aspect of what we do on YOU. We find spaces that are unique, beautiful and lend themselves equally to meeting new friends, catching up with old ones and dancing the night away. We welcome you, exactly as you are. We encourage and honour your authenticity. Put simply, we appreciate you.

This year the WiS team brought you Rebecca Saunders, Succeeding as your Authentic Self. It was a dinner to remember, as Rebecca told her story of embracing HER self, with beautiful baldness and sparkly shoes as her trademark look, to accompany her entire business purpose, of encouraging other women to do the same. It was exactly the event we all needed. Your WiS committee walked away that night reinvigorated and committed to making Women in Strata a continued success.

In 2024 we have some changes and some big plans. Amanda Farmer, founder and Captain of the WiS team, is taking a step back. WiS now has the wings to fly to heights that Amanda only dreamed of when she started blogging about issues unique to women working in strata in 2015. We also welcome Annatina Aguiar who is re-joining us as a steering committee member.

We WILL be relaunching the mentoring program. A fully supported, 6-month opportunity that will run from June – December 2024. Mentors will be matched with mentees who have the skill and experience to encourage development milestones and goal realisation. The program will include content to guide each pair to get the best from the relationship, events and an opportunity to continue after the formal program ends. Make sure you are signed up to our emails to keep up-to-date.

We’ll also be running a very fun, and uniquely Women in Strata event to chase away the winter blues in June and of course, save the date, Thursday 14 November 2024, for our next epic end of year party.

WiS is run entirely by a team of amazing volunteers, who have full-time strata jobs, businesses to run, families…yet make the time always for you and all we believe in. Shout out to Amanda Farmer, Sarah Walmsley, Reena Van Aalst, Aylie Brutman and Christine Ashfield.

It felt like the come-back year for WiS as we navigate a post-Covid world, and we want to thank every one of you. Those who attended our events, read our newsletters or reached out with encouragement.
