Sydney Community Connect Inc (SCCI) celebrated International Women’s Day with a dinner and awards, on Wednesday 16 March 2022 at The Lemnos By Clarence House in Belmore, in order to recognise high achievers in the community.

The main purpose of this event was to achieve several goals that align with SCCI’s vision and acknowledge women who have dedicated their time to social work, charity services and education being role models in various fields where they have had a lasting impact on the local Australian communities.

These extraordinary women were nominated by the public and duly selected by a specified women’s committee.

It was a social evening where businesses, charities and the like, came together after a tragic year of COVID, embrace their achievements and continue to be inspired through invited speakers  including local politicians and business leaders.

The evening also included a multicultural parade and allowed an opportunity for networking enabling women to reach out, exchange, and build relations to empower each other.

The event created a safe and enjoyable space to celebrate the diversity in the Australian community at large.
