Soroptimist International Beenleigh International Women’s Day Breakfast

"The 2020 International Women's Day Breakfast was a morning to remember." 

— Lilli Barclay-Ford | Year 12

Four of our Year 12 female student leaders attended the Soroptimist International Beenleigh International Women’s Day Breakfast last Friday in the lead up to International Women's Day 2020.

Amber Little, Lilli Barclay-Ford, Jemma Pettifer and Sarah Allen attended the breakfast that celebrated our diverse community of strong women and their valuable contributions. 

The students were able to meet an array of successful women including government officials, business leaders and inspirational individuals, with local guest speaker Kathryn Lyons inspiring the audience. Wheelchair bound since her middle teens, 28 year-old Kathryn is a progressive individual that is passionate about creating a more inclusive and accessible world. 

The breakfast, along with the powerful and inspiring speech by Kathryn Lyons,  motivated our leaders to embrace the 2020 theme for IWD and strive for greatness in the quest to create an equal world.
