“Women Making a Difference” Headline CBA Women in Focus Lunch
Thursday, 16th February 2012 at 8:33 am

The Deputy Commissioner of the NSW Police Force and 2011 Telstra Business Woman of the Year, Catherine Burn, is one of three high profile women who will be guest speakers at Commonwealth Bank of Australia’s Women in Focus lunch in Sydney in March.

Women in Focus together with the Sydney Community Foundation are hosting the lunch to celebrate the 101st International Women’s Day and to hear from women making a difference in the most vulnerable sectors of the community.

At this event the Sydney Women’s Fund will launch their research paper, A Portrait on Women and Girls in Sydney which sheds light on vulnerable sectors of women in Sydney.

With a focus on the current concerns relating to women in local communities and how to support those that are most vulnerable, Catherine Burn will host a discussion panel on What are we doing to make a difference in the community?

Other guest speakers include, Rosalind Strong AM, the Chair of Sydney Community Foundation and a previous Chair of UN Women Australia, the Sydney Community Foundation, a public philanthropic fund where donors combine their gifts to build a growing and permanent endowment for the benefit of the community of Greater Sydney. Indigenous Health Researcher and NT Young Australian of the Year 2011, Kalinda Griffiths will join the line up.

The lunch will take place on Friday March 9, 2012 at Commonwealth Bank – Level 19, 201 Sussex St, Sydney from 12:00-2:00pm. The cost is $80 per head with all proceeds going to the Sydney Women’s Fund.

Women in Focus encourages women to share their personal and business stories to inspire others, celebrate achievement and to reach out and help others. Women in Focus will be holding similar themed International Women’s Day events throughout March in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Darwin.

The Sydney Women’s Fund works for a community where all women and girls achieve their potential and live safely without fear of discrimination or disadvantage.

Registration for the lunch can be made at Women in Focus International Women's Day – Sydney.
