Women of Influence
Join us for the Women of Influence Evening on Wednesday 4 March from 6:30pm- 8:30pm.
This year we will have a special focus – celebrating Loreto women who are having a positive impact in rural and regional areas.
The event has been scheduled to coincide with International Women’s Day, along with other celebrations and events that week such as Super Girl Week and Mary Ward Connect.
The Women of Influence Evening is a significant event on the Loreto Normanhurst calendar and all students, parents, and ex-students are encouraged to attend.
We have an excellent line-up of speakers this year:
Hear from Genevieve Jacobs (Class of ’84) who spent more than a decade broadcasting with ABC Canberra, and is now the Group Editor for Region Media, Australia’s fastest growing digital news platform. Genevieve has an enduring interest in building and strengthening community engagement, and is a partner in the family farming enterprise.
Angela Burford (Class of ’09), Captain of Wamberal Rural Fire Brigade. Angela is the first female Captain of the Brigade since its establishment in 1957 and is one of only 56 female Captains (out of the 1,994 Captains) across the State.
Camilla Ward (Class of ’90) was the 2019 NSW Local Woman of the Year for the Dubbo Electorate and is the founder and creative director of The Creative Voice – a performing arts studio with a difference. She is a passionate arts advocate for regional youth, providing opportunities through programs to “Bring Out Their Creative Voice Within”.
Grace Murray (Class of ’09) is a Rural Support Worker with the NSW Department of Primary Industries, where her primary role is to help farming communities build business and social resilience. Grace also provides on-the-ground information and feedback to policy and decision makers within government.
We look forward to seeing you on the 4th March, as we celebrate and witness the value of a Loreto education come alive through the stories of our wonderful ex-students.
