On 12 March, Barangaroo South celebrated International Women’s Day with a breakfast at Barangaroo Point which included special guest speaker, seven time world surfing champion Layne Beachley who shared her experience with personal and professional obstacles.
Barangaroo South Community Development Manager Alisa Hitchcock said the event left many feeling inspired by the precinct’s commitment to recognising and celebrating women.
“We felt privileged to have Layne attend our event. It was a great way to celebrate and meet many of the tenants who will be working at Barangaroo in the near future,” she said.
