High Tea with a Twist!
More than 200 colleagues joined AMA (NSW) to hear guest speaker Annabel Crabb at the Sydney High Tea with a Twist held in March.
Driving rains and a threatening thunderstorm couldn’t keep the more than 200 medical professionals and their partners from attending the Sydney High Tea with a Twist, held 18 March.
While previous High Tea networking events have focused on women in medicine, this year AMA (NSW) opened up the session to all medical professionals.
Scheduled to start at 3pm, attendees were knocking down at the doors of Parliament House at 2’o clock, eager to get in and meet guest speaker Annabel Crabb.
Ms Crabb, who is one of Australia’s most popular political commentators, is also a Fairfax columnist, Walkley winner, TV host, author and mother-of-three.
She spoke about experiences that are related in her book, The Wife Drought, published in 2014, which blends a series of candid and funny stories from the author’s work in politics and media. The book challenges the traditional work-and-family debate and asks why it’s always about women? She surmises that having a spouse to take care of home and family is an asset that is often more available to men than women, and discusses the barriers that this creates to women reaching top jobs in politics, companies and organisations.
Events such as The Sydney High Tea with a Twist are just one of the many benefits members enjoy. We hope to see you there next year.
