The importance of networking. 

You’ve heard about the gender pay gap — but there’s another gap that’s just as important, though much less discussed: the network gap. Women of Australian Distilling are holding a mixer to bring women together from all over Australia for a night of cocktails, delicious food & good chat, with an amazing host and wonderful guest speaker. 

Research suggests that professional networking can assist your career development by providing access to job opportunities, career advice, and resources. Building a strong network of industry professionals can also contribute to your career progression, personal growth, and long-term success.

Let's go, what are you waiting for!
