Happy International Women's Day

March 10, 2020

Sunday, March 8 was International Women’s Day. The day has been celebrated by the United Nations since 1975 and can be traced back to 1909.

This year’s International Women’s Day theme was EACH FOR EQUAL: ‘an equal world is an enabled world’. On Friday, March 6 I joined an International Women's Day breakfast held by the Central Coast Community and Business Women’s Network (CBWN) with Business and Professional Women Central Coast and the Central Coast Festival of Women.

The Central Coast Community and Business Women’s Network was founded in 2018 by Sharyn Burgess.

Membership opened just 14 months ago and it's climbed to 264.

Sharyn was recognised for her outstanding efforts connecting business and community in this year's Central Coast Australia Day awards.

CBWN believes connecting women leads to growth and resilience for the person, their business and our community.

New members have described CBWN as a wonderful network of like-minded women and a fabulous opportunity to connect with like-minded-women in the local community.

If you'd like to join other women on the Central Coast and become part of the one of the most exciting women's networks, contact CBWN's Sharyn Burgess at
