WORK180 & CommBank present

Women in Business Luncheon

Thursday, 8 September 2022
12:00pm to 2:00pm
Watermans Room, Barangaroo, Sydney

Celebrating women and their progress

Join us on the 8th of September for a two-course lunch and drinks at 12-Micron, Barangaroo, for a glimpse into what it takes to be successful in client-facing roles and a celebration of women with inspiring careers. 

Our guest speakers will share their experiences navigating traditionally challenging environments and thriving, proving these industries no longer have to be an old boys’ club.

You’ll also have the opportunity to network with like-minded women and learn through their practical tips and advice for your career journey.

Proceeds will be donated to Dress for Success Sydney – a charity that empowers and supports women by providing the essential tools to help them gain employment and attain financial independence.
