2023 CEW annual dinner in sydney
We had the pleasure of joining 1,400 other guests for the CEW Dinner last night at the ICC in Sydney.
The evening began with a particularly moving welcome to country by Sonja Stuart, CEO of the Law Society of NSW, who spoke from the heart about her own life and aspirations for future generations in this country. Her call to action and support of the Voice received resounding support from the room.
The ‘Be Bold’ theme was explored by presenters, providing startling examples of BOLD actions by women leaders across generations, continents and cultures. The importance of the CEW Scholarship Program was reinforced by past participants who stressed the life changing nature of the experience.
The keynote speakers, Natasha Stott Despoja AO and Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz, challenged everyone in the room with Bold actions to support the position of women in Australia and the world. A final reminder from both leaders that organizations with women in leadership roles perform better on all fronts – make more money, cause less wars, and build more productive communities.
Let’s all Be Bold!
