The Trailblazers: The 3 Female Entrepreneurs Making a Difference in 2021 (and beyond)

Their names are hard to keep straight, but they will keep you between the lines and even brake for you. And more tech is coming.

When buying a new car it’s easy to get bamboozled by so-called “specs”. There’s so much jargon it’s difficult to know what’s important: From cylinders, displacement, kilowatts, torque, transmission and cargo volume to turning circle. Throw in an array of acronyms — like ESC, ABS, AEB, LSS to BSM — and it’s no wonder many of us throw up our hands when purchasing a new vehicle, and say: “Whatevs. I’ll just buy the red car”.

It pays, however, to know your car’s safety features. They not only help you, the driver, survive a crash, but hopefully avoid one altogether.

So, here are some terms and tech you shouldn’t overlook when buying a new vehicle.

We’re only 6 months in and this year, and let’s just call it for what it is… Tough…. We’ve spent a lot of our time in lockdown, we’ve spent even more time trying to navigating the ‘new norm’ and guilty as charged, we’ve drunk too much wine.

The Stella Women Series Featuring Liz Dawes

We want to be the first to welcome you to the April ‘Stella Women Series’ and introduce you to the incredible Liz Dawes, a passionate community leader and businesswoman who founded the Robert Conner Dawes foundation after she tragically lost her son Conner to brain cancer in 2013. Liz has turned the tragedy of losing her son Conner into her purposeful mission to help others affected by this relatively unknown disease. Liz’s other greatest fight was in her career; against sexism, ageism and the stigma attached to being that ‘Grieving mother’. Liz has used those stereotypes to motivate her on her journey and give hope to other children and families globally who are also in the fight of their lives against this disease.

We sat down with Liz to chat about the work she has done and what’s next for her and the foundation.

Every year on 8 March, communities around the world celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD) which recognises women’s significant contributions and achievements, and rallies to accelerate gender equity in a range of social, cultural, political, and economic arenas.

This year the #IWD theme was #ChooseToChallenge, which shines a light on the responsibility we have to ‘call out’ gender bias and inequality in every day situations, so we hit the streets of Sydney to see who would stand with us.

The Australian Female Led Businesses to Keep Watching in 2021

Out of 200 ASX companies, The Chief Executive Women (CEW) found there were only 10 female CEOS in Australia, and while more and more women are smashing through glass ceilings to create multimillion-dollar businesses we also know female-led businesses have been hit particularly hard since Covid-19 hit.

The Stella Women Series Featuring Moo Baulch

The Stella team met Moo and some of her colleagues from WAGEC a couple of months ago and there were immediately synergies between their goal to end gender-based violence in a generation and what we at Stella are committed to achieving as a business.

We’re delighted to be able to use our voice in promoting WAGEC’s work to drive positive social change and help them to shine a light on the underlying structural causes of domestic and family violence, homelessness and gender inequality.

Buying a New Car? Check Out These Top Tips Every Woman Should Know

Cool young woman portrait in New York City.

Women account for 52% of all road users and now influence more than 80% of car purchase decisions in Australia. We drive 45% of all new cars on Australian roads, and as a percentage of the population, there are more women with a driver’s licence than men. It’s also worth noting that Australian women have better safety driving records than men, we have fewer accidents, fewer claims and a lot less damage to our cars if we do find ourselves in an accident so we were at a loss to understand how the insurance and motor service industries in Australia rarely marketed to women.
