International Women’s Day – Celebrating local Women challenging the norm

No events to show


Join us to celebrate International Women’s Day, with a morning tea & networking session.

Hear from three local businesswomen who have been incredibly successful in industries that have traditionally been male dominated.

Colleen Upton,  General Manager,  Hutt Gas & Plumbing

Sarah Comber – North Island Social Development Manager, Foulton Hogan

Priya Shama – Wellington Branch Sales Manager, 360logistics

They will give a short talk a little bit about why they choose their career path and the challenges and highlights along their journey.

This event is supporting Dress for Success 

Dress for Success is a global not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
