International Women's Day 2017

International Women’s Day is an important time to come together and reflect on our achievements, as well as highlight the important work still to be done to achieve gender equality, enhance women’s financial wellbeing and empower the next generation of women.

To celebrate International Women's Day, CommBank's Women in Focus are hosting events around Australia. At each event we’ll support a local women’s community group, and be joined by thought leaders working to build better communities. We believe empowering women and girls to participate fully in life across all sectors is essential to improving the quality of life for women and their families.

We hope you can join us for a very special day in your city.
