Women of Influence

Held in the same week as International Women’s Day, the Loreto Normanhurst ‘Women of Influence’ Evening 2019 was a wonderful event for our ex-students and the wider community.

Our amazing speakers on the night were :

  • Jennifer Hughes (nee Hills ’88) – Partner, Environmental Markets, Baker McKenzie;
  • Robi Stanton (’89) General Manager, Turner Australia;
  • Denise Cheng (’97) Relationship Manager, Equity Trustees; and
  • Annika Stott (’05) Sustainability Strategist, OzHarvest.


For the first time this year, we were delighted to welcome students and staff from Loreto Toorak and Loreto Ballarat, who joined us at the event as part of their Mary Ward Connect experience. 

We thank Jennifer, Robi, Denise and Annika for so graciously sharing their inspirational journey, for reconnecting and empowering Loreto girls and women.
