Event description

Description

International Women’s Day is an important time for us all to come together to celebrate our achievements and continue to drive change to create a better, more equal world.

To celebrate International Women's Day, CommBank's Women in Focus are hosting events in a number of cities around Australia.

We believe that a collaborative effort is required in order to achieve gender equality. As we come together to celebrate, you'll hear from thought leaders and social change makers who are working hard to create lasting change across government, business, not-for-profits and communities.

This year, $20 from every ticket purchased will be contributed to the Women in Focus Giving Community, raising funds for programs that support women who face challenges accessing the opportunities they need to thrive, building their capability and confidence in three key areas: education, business skills and financial wellbeing. Through focusing on these areas, we believe we can make a lasting impact on improving the quality of life of women and girls and ultimately build stronger communities. We will share the details of the programs we’ll be supporting through the Giving Community soon.

At each event, a panel of inspiring speakers – from board directors to community leaders – will explore some of the barriers women face and the work that is underway to break them down. You can read more about our speakers below.

We’re much more powerful when we work together. We hope you’ll join us as we come together to celebrate and hear from some of Australia's leading change makers this International Women’s Day.
