Australia – Women In Leadership 2023

It was our absolute privilege to bring together a group of our supporters to honour and celebrate Women in Leadership, the room was full of energy and we are very thankful to EY for hosting us.

It was a terrific turnout and we thank all of our guest for attending including Consul General Rosie Keane, our host, Jennifer Cox Director and Bernard Quain Partner EY. The Hon Helen Coonan, long-time friend of the Ireland Funds. Helen Waldron head of Member Relations at AI Group and Caitriona Wortley, Head of Strategic Growth at Drummond Capital, Sarah O’Carroll Forbes, Judith Harrington Enterprise Ireland A/NZ, Tina King-Garde Presenter Ireland Calling Radio, Damian Ennis , Deputy Chair, The Lansdowne Club, Cliff Wilson (FCA) Chair, Irish Chartered Accountants Association and our wonderful young leaders represented by Toni O’Neill PhD Chair and Máirtín O Rabhartaigh Deputy.

We heard from our Executive Director Teresa Keating and our Chair Yvonne Le Bas who updated us on the incredible work of The Ireland Funds here in Australia and in Ireland. We then had the absolute pleasure of hearing three very different incredible stories from a panel including our host Jennifer Cox Director EY, Niamh Cunningham, Head of Protective Security at Canva and Shauna Keogh Emmy Nominated TV Producer and Director from Empire Elite Ltd moderated by Helen Waldron.

We are excited about this initiative and the opportunity to build a network that can empower, inspire and give whilst we share and connect.
