Women are nearly 50% of the workforce in Australia, and businesswomen in Western Sydney are doing wonderful things in work, leadership and industry.

The CBCC strives to advocate for gender equity and overcome the barriers that still plague women today in business and trades.

Whether it’s smashing the glass ceiling or examining the gender pay gap, the CBCC is dedicated to promoting, advocating and encouraging gender equality from the root of policy, aligning women’s issues into the future as the business climate continues to evolve.

CBCC Women’s Committee

The CBCC is delighted to announce the launch of our Women’s committee. It is important for women in business to be able to network with one another to allow women to support women. Are you a female-founded business or a woman in a leadership role?

We welcome you to join us and become part of the change you want to be!

Promoting Women’s Equity

Canterbury Bankstown is one of the most diverse LGAs in Sydney, known for its multicultural diversity and growing economic zone. Our diversity and growth are both barriers and drivers of change. As times shift, the CBCC works to ensure that women’s issues are respected in our future policies and that tangible changes for the better occur. The CBCC will continue to promote and advocate for women’s equity in business and life as one of the leading voices in the community.

BRAVE Project

The CBCC is spearheading a movement of change. With the BRAVE Project, we aim to empower women to have the bravery and power to chase their dreams and live a life that gives them joy. Through events, workshops, education, advocacy, and mentoring, we challenge the barriers that stop them from achieving these dreams and create a community that will support, inspire, empower, and motivate women to become who they want to be.

BRAVE Return To Work

BRAVE Return To Work

The CBCC is delivering a new initiative: BRAVE Return To Work. In partnership with Western Sydney University and the NSW Government, this initiative aims to provide essential wrap-around skills and opportunities to South-West and Western Sydney CALD women who want to return to work. As part of the initiative, participating women will have access to recognised micro-credentials, resources, and connections to a strong network of active and unbiased entrepreneurs, employees, and mentors.
