The truly unique Women You Can Bank On (WYCBO) event is returning for its sixth year, on Thursday 15th September, and is set to be bigger and better than ever before.

“We have great pleasure in announcing the partnership with UN Women Aotearoa NZ. The theme for the 2022 event is “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow” said Kim Dodds, Business Development Manager, Dunedin Venues.

Tara Singh, President, said “UN Women Aotearoa NZ is truly excited to join this well regarded event as a partner for 2022. Climate action, building a sustainable planet and recognising the significant contribution of women and girls to leading the charge for change is a priority focus for UN Women around the world. Advancing gender equality in the context of the climate crisis is one of the greatest global challenges of the 21st century”.

Anderson Lloyd continues to support WYCBO as a major sponsor and have been a proud partner since 2019.

Kerry O’Donnell, Property and Private Client Partner and Chair of the Anderson Lloyd Board commented “Anderson Lloyd is delighted to once again be the Major Sponsor of this fabulous event.
