One of the speakers, Ms Oberoi, experienced crippling mental health challenges and
struggled to find purpose for years, until she began work as a carer in 2007. The
experience inspired her to launch Afea, which now supports more than 1,000 families
every week.
“The past two years have been incredibly challenging for women in NSW, especially
small business owners,” NSW Minister for Women Bronnie Taylor said.
“NSW Women’s Week is an important time to recognise and celebrate the diversity of
women and girls in communities across our State,” said  Federal Member for Reid, Dr Fiona Martin.
“These recent times have created mental health challenges while also demonstrating
the extraordinary resilience of our community, especially our small business community”.

“I truly believe that the most successful business leaders navigating the challenges of
COVID-19 will do so through flexibility, focus and fight. By this I mean, the flexibility to
adapt your business, your ways of working and mindset, the focus to keep your eye on
the end game, and the fight to keep on going even when things look tough.” said Ms
Nandkeolyar, CEO of MultiConnexions Group.
Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Harman Foundation Her House (which
provides accommodation to women & their children escaping domestic and family.
