CFA Societies Australia International Women’s Day event

When: March 6, 2024

Where: Melbourne, Australia


With the right mindset, anything is possible

The CFA Societies Australia International Women’s Day event is one of the most visible events celebrating women in finance and investment.

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. International Women’s Day is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action – whatever that looks like globally at a local level.

In March 2024, CFA Societies Australia will host a gala lunch networking event with keynote speaker, Turia Pitt, an athlete, author and mum. Surviving burns to 65 percent of her body during an ultramarathon, Turia is living proof that with the right mindset, anything is possible.

The presentation will be held in person in Sydney on Friday, 8 March. We will live-stream Turia Pitt’s presentation from Sydney to Perth and Brisbane for broader audience reach and message amplification.

In 2011, Turia was a mining engineer, living her dream life in the Australian outback. Then, while competing in a 100km ultra-marathon, she was caught in a grassfire. Turia was choppered out of the remote desert barely alive, with full thickness burns to 65 percent of her body. She lost seven fingers, had over 200 medical procedures and spent two gruelling years in recovery.  Surviving against overwhelming odds, she rebuilt her life and defied every expectation placed on her. Turia has written three best-selling books, coached over 40,000 people in her digital courses, shared a stage with Tony Robbins, competed in the Ironman World Championships, sailed a boat around French Polynesia, walked the Kokoda Trek, met some amazing people and a business to be truly proud of. Turia’s story has resonated with millions of people around the globe, and she loves helping people get happier, more confident and more… whatever you want to be more of!
