We are excited to announce the launch of Australian Women in New York’s (AWNY) live interview series on Clubhouse. We’ve lined up six aussie and kiwi womxn for unfiltered and unapologetic conversations about the resilience, camaraderie and shared experience of living in new york: what brought them here, what their experience was like through the pandemic and most importantly what keeps them hopeful about their future here in New York and beyond. If you are still in love with this city, this interview series is for you.
And it *is* a conversation – on Clubhouse, the audience interacts with the guests in real-time!
Grab a cuppa, a bagel slathered in vegemite and tune in with us at 8AM on Thursdays through May and June 2021 for conversations with these guests:

Are you on Clubhouse?
Yes, Clubhouse is currently invite-only, we are *positive* you know someone on the app! Reach out to your mates on social media and ask for an invite. And if you still aren’t sure what Clubhouse is, here is a Clubhouse 101 primer if you need it. It’s also currently only available on iPhone, which we know is a huge bummer to all of our mates who are Android users.
Find your mates (us!) on Clubhouse
Once you have downloaded the app, and got an invite to join, find out club on Clubhouse by searching ‘Australian Women in New York’ or tapping this link.
We hope you are able to tune into this series and if you do, what you think. We want to inspire all of our Australian women in New York family of why they came to the city initially and to be part of the Big Apple’s recovery. Because New York is worth it.
See you on Clubhouse!
