We’re excited for you to join us and other industry professionals in helping support and empower women across the building industry.
At the young ages of 17 & 18, Adelaide’s own Isobel Marshall and her dear friend Eloise Hall, formed TABOO - a social enterprise which offers a range of organic cotton period products, with all net profits, education and advocacy efforts dedicated to ending period poverty.
After crowdfunding $56,000 to kickstart the social enterprise in 2017, TABOO quickly became a trusted Australian brand, and a community of passionate people motivated to end the disadvantage faced by so many people with a uterus.
Millions of girls and women around the world were forced to drop out of school, compromise their employment, and disengage from their community due to period poverty. In 2021, Isobel was awarded Young Australian of The Year. This national platform has strengthened and grown TABOO’s capacity to advocate for and work towards social, structural and practical change.
As a 4th year medical student, Isobel is particularly passionate about the intersection between biology and society, and how the social enterprise model can grow and expand into many industries. She will talk about the importance of purpose at a team and individual level, and why social change is all of our business. Themes of leadership as a young person will be explored, as well as lessons learnt throughout a very eventful past 5 years.
