Celebrating International Women's Day in Australia

This year's theme for International Women's Day, #BalanceforBetter, is about recognising that gender balance is not a women's issue, it's a societal one.

The George Institute for Global HealthJean Haile’s for Women’s Health and Franklin Women held a special breakfast discussion in Sydney on what leadership, balance and the journey to getting there means for women in Australia.

Our panel of notable women leaders spoke from personal experience to provide tips and insights about finding balance in life and career goals. The panel comprised of: Catherine Livingstone AO, Chairman of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia; Dr Stephanie Fahey, CEO of Austrade; Leanne Wells, CEO of the Consumers Health Forum of Australia; Melinda Cruz, Founder of Miracle Babies. Journalist Rae Johnstone was MC.
