CEW Annual DInner 2021

The Chief Executive Women Annual Dinner is one of the most prestigious events in Australia’s corporate calendar. It is attended by CEW Members, Sponsors and partners, CEOs and their management teams from across the country. The Annual Dinner is CEW’s most important fundraising event, and these funds are used to support CEW Scholarship Program and CEW’s work to enable more women leaders in Australia.

In 2021 CEW is celebrating the return of face-to-face events. Still being mindful of COVID restrictions and members who are opting not to travel at this time, dinners are being held simultaneously in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane.
