Video: VCCI celebrates International Women’s Day 2021

08 March 2021

We are proud to team with CareSuper and celebrate International Women’s Day by asking some of our most influential female leaders what #ChooseToChallenge means to them.


We spoke to four of Victoria’s most successful women to ask them how they will be celebrating International Women’s Day and what they are doing as leaders to encourage female participation in their workplace.

Thanks go to VCCI President Karyn Sobels, CareSuper CEO Julie Lander, Bendigo Kangan Institute CEO Sally Curtain and MCEC Director of Business Relaunch Helen Fairclough for taking the time out of their busy schedules to share their thoughts.
