Vintage high tea sure to inspire women in industry

AN afternoon mix of business and inspiration will set the scene for a 1950s Vintage Vogue High Tea.

The Gladstone Engineering Alliance is holding the high tea in Gladstone on May 22 to keep inspiring women in industry.

Following the success of the bi-annual 2013 GEA Inspiring Women in Industry Conference, the GEA felt it imperative to keep the Inspiring Women in Industry message alive.

"Supporting women in the workplace is not only the right thing to do, but it makes bloody good sense," said GEA life member and strategic director Les Salter.

"Why would any business deliberately eliminate half the gene pool?"

The event brings inspirational speaker Rachael Robertson to Gladstone, accompanied by a '50s vintage vogue dress theme and an indulgent Couture Champagne menu.

A former Antarctic expedition leader, chief ranger, author and leadership expert, Ms Robertson has managed a diverse group of 120 people, through isolation, and months of darkness.

The Vintage Vogue High Tea will be held at Harvey Road Tavern from 2.30-5.30pm. Cost is $90 for GEA members and $110 for non-members.
