Introducing our keynote – Antoinette Lattouf

Antoinette is a media personality, multi-award-winning journalist, diversity advocate, author, and mother of two gorgeous girls.

In 2019, Antoinette was named among AFR’s 100 Women of Influence. In 2021, she was awarded a Women’s Agenda Leadership Award. In 2021, Antoinette also won the B&T Women in Media Champion of Change award. She is also the co-founder of Media Diversity Australia – a not for profit organisation working towards increasing cultural and linguistic diversity in the media.

Antoinette has worked in television, online and radio at Network 10, SBS, ABC and triple j. She’s been a guest panellist on ABC’s Q&A, SBS Insight, Sky News, Network 10’s Studio10 & The Feed. 

Antoinette’s book ‘How to Lose Friends and Influence White People’ will be published by Penguin Books on 3 May. This book is a funny, friendly but firm guide on how to be an ally and champion change for racial equality.

Antoinette will share how we can influence others in a positive way to make a difference when championing change and racial equality.  Whether it’s the racist relative sitting across the table at a family function, or a leader in your company who is blind to the institutional barriers people of colour face in the workplace.

With the upcoming IWD theme #BreakTheBias…. We couldn’t think of a more suitable keynote speaker if we tried.  The WOI community is looking forward to hear Antoinette talk about how we too can break the bias in our homes, schools, workplaces, communities and beyond.

Breaking the bias is all about a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is values and celebrated.

This is what it means to be an ally, sometimes it might be uncomfortable, but change always is.

We hope you’re as excited as we are to CONNECT, LEARN and GROW with Antoinette Lattouf at our upcoming breakfast on 9 March at RACV Royal Pines.

Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias
