International Women’s Day: Ringing the ASX Bell for Gender Equality

Tuesday, 8 March 2016

9:15am – 10:00am

ASX, Exchange Centre, 20 Bridge Street, Sydney


To mark International Women’s Day this year, we are ringing the ASX opening bell for gender equality. 

A coalition of organisations, including the Global Compact Network Australia (GCNA), S&P Dow Jones and the International Finance Corporation, are organising the event, which will be hosted by the ASX.

The event will hear from a panel of business leaders, including:

  • Ann Sherry, Chief Executive Officer, Carnival Australia
  • Alison Watkins, Group Managing Director, Coca-Cola Amatil
  • Lisa Green, General Executive Human Resources, ASX
  • Yolanda Beattie, Diversity and Inclusion Practice Leader, Mercer (Facilitator)

This Australian event will form part of the global Ring the Bell for Gender Equality series, which will see Stock Exchanges around the world ring the opening or closing bell to highlight the role of the private sector in empowering women, and promote the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) – a joint initiative of the UN Global Compact and UN Women – which provide guidance for business on empowering women in the workplace, marketplace and community.
