Let's March into Autumn
Watch as the Adelaide Hills turn golden before the Autumn leaves drop
It’s a colourful time of year for the Adelaide Hills as the foliage in our tree lined streets drop for the Autumn season and we see the return of misty mornings. There is plenty to see, do, and watch this month, starting with International Women’s Day this Friday 8 March. This year’s theme is, Count her in: Invest in Women. Accelerate Progress. Women's economic empowerment is central to a gender equal world. In support of the theme, we’re proud to share three intimate case studies of successful female leaders from within Council. Pictured above is Natalie Armstrong, Nicole Budd and Melinda Rankin all with a unique story for how they got to where they are today. #countherin
