It’s Our First Birthday – See How We Stella-brated!

It’s our first birthday and to Stella-brate we set our incredible GM Renee Cosgrave the (impossible?) challenge to share the highlights from our first year in business with you in just one minute. Let’s do this!

The Stella Series Featuring Lydia Bradey

This month we sat down with the incredible Lydia Bradey, who at 27 years of age became the first woman in the world to climb Mt Everest without oxygen in 1988 (only 6 women since have gone on to complete this incredible feat).

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.

Stella x International Women’s Day 2021 #Choosetochallenge

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 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.

Stella was born to be more than just an insurer; we believe that we can make meaningful change through education, support and empowerment that will give women the tools they need to make informed choices and amplify women’s voices for generations to come. 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.
