THE South Burnett Women group has some big plans for the new year.

Their first event is the International Women's Day breakfast on March 8, with keynote speaker Melissa Barnett, of Taabinga Station in the South Burnett.

Ms Barnett has recently taken the helm of the Queensland Rural, Regional and Remote Women's Network.

Tickets to the breakfast will be available from February 8 for South Burnett Women members and February 22 for non-members.

The theme for next year's breakfast is "Press for Progress” after the World Economic Forum's 2017 Global Gender Gap Report found gender parity is more than 200 years away.

The funds from the breakfast will go to the Dr Mary Ellen Kent Hughes Memorial Scholarship, which provides $5000 to support the recipient in their chosen area of study.

The group is also starting empower circles next year.

Move forward with a specific goal, whether it be business, personal growth, finance, health, fitness, family and parenting or community development.

Bring your goal into a circle of three with peer coaching to strategise and implement within your group a self-directed project for the South Burnett community.

The empower circles are launching in February.

Membership is $20 for an individual and $75 for an organisation of up to five members.
