BEING A WOMAN OF VALUE

IWD celebrations at Aveo Bella Vista
AN inspiring International Women's Day breakfast was hosted recently by Aveo Bella Vista and Rotary Norwest Sunrise to celebrate women in leadership.
 
The Hills region is home to some of the most dynamic and impressive women, strong and innovative leaders who make a real difference, and the breakfast was full of celebrations, inspiring words and moments.
 
Community, members and friends enjoyed a scrumptious breakfast and a trio of inspiring women speakers who shared powerful messages about helping others but also believing in yourself. 
 
Hills Shire Mayor, Michelle Byrne shared her story on the lessons she has learned in the pursuit of her passion and in serving her community.
 
“It’s a day to acknowledge how far we have come and how far we still need to go to close the gender gap," Councillor Byrne said.
 
Azita Abdollahian, founder of Shining Light Foundation and Sahera Sumar of Full Potential, also shared their inspiring stories and how to be a woman of value, rather than a woman of success. 
 
All funds raised will support women's projects conducted by the newly formed Hills Women’s Shed.
 
Aveo Bella Vista is a premium retirement community in the Hills District. The venue will again host this inspiring annual IWD event in 2020.
