Event description

Description

International Women’s Day is an important time to come together and acknowledge our achievements, as well as highlight the important work still to be done to create a better world for women.

To celebrate International Women's Day, CommBank's Women in Focus are hosting events in capital cities and regional centres around Australia.

At each event we’ll come together to fundraise and support community initiatives that empower women through education, business incubators and financial literacy programs. We’ll be joined by inspiring speakers who are thought leaders in their fields, all working to build better communities.

United together, we believe we have the power to lift each other up, and make a lasting impact on improving the quality of life of women and their families.
