Proud to be part of the Sydney Women’s Fund special event honouring Wendy McCarthy AO, our business founder, educator, change-agent, company director, “disrupter” and mentor to many.
Close friend the Hon Dame Quentin Bryce led the tributes, warmly describing Wendy as a evangelist, promoter and persuader – one who has fought hard for women’s and children’s rights, shaken the status-quo and has supported so many in their careers and lives.
Continuing to inspire, Wendy discussed the power of friendships and passion, the importance of saying yes to opportunities and the critical role of education in lifting women out of poverty and disadvantage – “it’s the one thing that no one can ever take away”.
