Award-winning broadcaster, journalist and author Antoinette Lattouf is just one of many to host International Women’s Day events being held in clubland this year. Joining her at Lady Banks Rooftop at Bankstown Sports Club are panellists Paralympic star Ellie Cole, journalist and author Elle Halliwell, entrepreneur Anyier Yuol and film festival director Jessica Zeait.
The Lady Banks event is dedicated to shining a light on the efforts and experiences of its wider community, and will play a role in helping forge worldwide conversation about the importance of why equal opportunities are no longer enough – and can in fact be exclusionary, rather than inclusive.
Set against the impressive backdrop of one of the best rooftop bars in Sydney, Bankstown Sports Group Marketing Manager Diana Pearce said the event is set to facilitate a unique opportunity to network with peers. The Lady Banks Rooftop event will not only feed minds with the perspective of others, it will also provide nourishment in the form of a three-course, sit-down luncheon with drink on arrival, all topped off with a complimentary gift to take home from the Lady Banks Rooftop team.
“Working on the Lady Banks brand with my team has been such an amazing experience, but by far the most rewarding aspect is that we are able to host events like these, that get people together who can share experiences, learn more about others and expand their network at a professional and personal level,” she told Club Management.
