  • “What does confidence mean to you?”
  • “The Jean Hailes Women’s Health Week is a wonderful opportunity to discover vital health knowledge and expert advice that can help you make confident decisions about your health and the health of loved ones.” - Senator Michaelia Cash, Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for Women and the Assistant Minister for Immigration and Border Protection
  • “Giving myself permission to make mistakes as long as I learn from them...I embrace the biggest challenges and celebrate the smallest victories.” - Maya
  • “Learn from as many different people as you can, work hard to develop skills in yourself and your team and then go for it! Success in your project/product/outcomes will engender confidence that you can take on more challenges and meet them well” - Jayashri
  • “It is important to normalise lack of confidence. We all have different levels of confidence in different areas of our lives. Confidence is a skill that can be developed with the right support. Working out what you love and what you are good at, builds your confidence. I love people and so I love to build strong relationships and invest in them. Having the support of talented people around me, builds my confidence” - Janet
  • “As migrant women, we have to acknowledge the fact that things such as premigration experiences, settlement issues, grief for the family left behind and the emotional impact of migration will have a negative impact on our self-confidence. At the same time, however, these experiences and emotions make us stronger, richer, more resilient, more empathetic - they make us unique and different from the majority and therefore we can offer more and confidently step into leadership positions.” - Maya
