International Women’s Day Lunch

A Kelvin Club joint event

Hosted by:
Fiona Patten

March 8, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm


We are proud to partner with The Kelvin Club to Embrace Equity – the theme for this year’s International Women’s Day.

The Kelvin Club have lined up a terrific day with special guests, a delicious two course lunch and delightful wines to match. All this fun begins from noon to be seated at 12:30pm.

Our very own Fiona Patten, a Melbourne Forum member and the epitome of women, will be the host for the day.

International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality. Equity isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s a must-have. #EmbraceEquity
