The Australian actor and founder & CEO of Saroni Roy Foundation, Saroni Roy, worked on a series of webinars and multicultural events for university students and the international women’s community in India and Australia.
Saroni Roy Foundation’s core values of diversity, sustainability and social justice are aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) and Saroni’s work in these initiatives profoundly contributed to the *UN SDGs no. 4, 5, 8, 10, 16, 17.
Focussing on UN SDG no. 4 & 8, Saroni was invited as a guest speaker at the Arka Literary Club, Arka Jain University Jharkhand (India) ‘Student Motivation’ Webinar on ‘Drama v/s Film v/s Commercial’.
“It was an emotional and nostalgic experience, connecting with the university students from the Jamshedpur campus, my hometown! I feel it is so important to educate students with information about how they can achieve sustained careers in the arts globally, and also to provide that mental strength and resilience by just sharing my life experiences.”
Saroni was also the guest of honour in March for a Meet & Greet via StreamYard at The Aananda Imperial Svenska, Bilaspur (India), and 94.3 My FM to celebrate IWD 2021 with eminent women achievers from India.
Saroni is also a global mentor at the Worldwide SHEROES– a Leadership & Mentorship Platform that was launched on the 19th March 2021 in Sydney. She was awarded as a SHERO, a woman admired or idealised for her courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.
SHEROES have overcome challenges, gained wisdom and experience and embrace Ubuntu ––“I am because you are”. Saroni as a peace ambassador has conceptualised and hosted an extensive list of multicultural community-cohesion, world peace programs and events that have brought together active participation from the Indigenous and International communities.
On 20th March 2021 marking the Harmony Day in Australia, Saroni curated 2021 Harmony Day Red Carpet Walk for the Powerful Empowered Women’s IWD 2021 ‘Choose To Challenge’ event held at Rydges, Norwest, NSW.
