"I am pleased to be a keynote speaker at your conference and that it is being held in Dili, Timor-Leste. 'Our Work, Our Lives' is a great theme which speaks to all women who are doing their best to balance work responsibilities with home life and other priorities. For me it brings to mind the importance of women understanding and being able to exercise their rights and responsibilities, as well as the need to improve the economic wellbeing of women. I look forward to highlighting the Australian Government's commitment to achieving a fair outcome for all women in the workplace and discussing the current equal pay case for social and community sector workers in Australia."
