International Women’s Day celebrations took over the upstairs function room of the Hotel Canobolas on Thursday.
Five female speakers, including industry leaders and the head of Commonwealth Bank Australia (CBA) Regional Bank, engaged in discussions pertinent to women across all sectors.
Execute General Manager Commonwealth Bank Marianne Perkovic heads up private banking at CBA, providing advice to high net wealth customers.
Ms Perkovic does advocacy work to change community views and empower women to take control of their finances.
“For me International Women’s Day is a celebration of the achievements of women – it’s also an opportunity to thank our male champions of change,” she said.
The guest of honour at Orange City Council’s International Women’s Day celebration at Orange Regional Conservatorium was motivational and inspirational speaker Julie Cross.
