The 2018 Summit is expected to attract more than 1,000 leaders across private and public sectors from 80 countries, injecting over $2 million into the New South Wales (NSW) economy.
Another person, among many, advocating on behalf of Australia’s 2018 bid was executive chairman of Carnival Australia and GlobeWomen international planning committee member, Ann Sherry AO.
‘Australia can showcase our world leading initiatives such as the Male Champions of Change program, the impact of advocacy organisations like Chief Executive Women, and our record supporting women in the Indo-Pacific to enter the global supply chain,’ she says.
‘World leaders can learn from Australia, and we, in turn, still have much to learn from the rest of the world.’
The Sydney Global Summit of Women Steering Committee includes Dame Quentin Bryce AD CVO, David Thodey AO, Lynette Mayne AM, Cassandra Kelly, David Cooke, Narelle Hooper, Annika Freyer, Martin Parkinson AC PSM, and co-chairs Ann Sherry AO and Lyn Lewis-Smith.
