SWAN Women in Business welcomed guest speaker Justine Colyer to its high tea function at Belvoir last Friday.

Ms Colyer is the chief executive of Rise Network and won the Community and Government Award in last year’s Telstra Women’s Business Awards.

The not-for-profit Rise Network, the only 24/7 refuge in WA for women under 18 and their children escaping domestic violence, also delivers accommodation and support for people with mental health issues and disabilities, youth at risk and the elderly.
