2023 International Women's Day- Women in Civil Breakfast

At CCF Victoria we are passionate about empowering women to build bright futures in our vibrant and growing industry. Join us for one of CCF Victoria’s most inspiring and important events for the year - Our Women in Civil Breakfast - as we come together at the Crown Palladium to recognise women’s achievements for International Women’s Day 2023

Our breakfast will showcase inspiring speakers who’ll leave you feeling empowered about your own career plus challenge you to empower other women  to make a difference and improve the experiences and opportunities for women working in our industry.

The 2023 Women in Civil Breakfast will be held at the luxurious Crown Palladium, at Crown Towers Southbank. A fully cooked breakfast will be served as well as tea and coffee. This year’s theme is “High Heels or High Vis!”, so for a bit of fun we encourage you to dress in either your high vis wear or dress to impress in your heels (the louder the colour the better!) Join us in bringing hi vis visibility to the endless career opportunities and pathways for women in civil construction.

A huge thank you to our Business Partners for their support of what will be an incredibly inspiring and important get together for our industry!

Cost is $89 for members and $129 for non-members. Tables of 10 are available to be booked.

We can’t wait to see you there!

Event Speakers:

Holly Ransom- Global Speaker, Interviewer and Leadership Trailblazer

Holly Random has delivered a Peace Charter to the Dalai Lama, was Sir Richard Branson’s nominee for Wired Magazine’s ‘Smart List’ of Future Game Changers to watch and was awarded the US Embassy’s Eleanor Roosevelt Award for Leadership Excellence in 2019. Having interviewed the likes of Barack Obama, Malcolm Gladwell, Richard Branson, Billie Jean-King, Condoleezza Rice, Nobel Prize Winner Muhammad Yunus and the world’s first humanoid robot Sophia, Holly fights complexity with curiosity, apathy with empowerment and fear with fact.

Holly is Chair of Pride Cup Australia, a non-profit organisation (and movement) devoted to challenging LGBTI+ discrimination within sporting clubs – and create welcoming and supportive environments for LGBTI participation and fans. A two-time Ironwoman, Holly loves to cook, dance and sing… despite her complete lack of talent at all three.
