Women in Macarthur and Alkalizer are celebrating International Women’s Day with a morning of inspiration, networking and high tea. The organising team includes:

Shefali Pall, Alkalizer: “Men and women both equally form two pillars of the side. This is just a platform to celebrate them together as a team.”

Polly Grundy, Director, Campbelltown Chamber of Commerce: “Women in particular have really embraced the changes that have happened in Campbelltown, especially with cultural integration and diversity, and I see that as a real positive. I think it really sets us apart to a lot of other suburbs.”

Melissa Woodward, Evolution Health Services: “These days, more networking groups are popping up, more support for mums in business, and women in general. Women are also getting more involved in areas like the usually male dominated chamber of commerce.”

Antionette Stonham, All About Style: “We have networking for businesswomen but we need something for community. So Kirsty Hilton and I are launching a community group called Village Macarthur.”
