Held annually in March, Women of Influence is an evening of inspiration and celebration as we share in the stories of Loreto Normanhurst ex-students and how their Loreto education has shaped and influenced their lives.
This event is held in the same week as International Women’s Day, along with Super Girl Week and Mary Ward Connect, other events that celebrate power of being a girl.
The Women of Influence Evening is a significant event on the Loreto Normanhurst calendar and all students, parents, ex-students and members of the wider community are encouraged to attend as we celebrate and witness the value of a Loreto education come alive through the stories of our wonderful ex-students.
