The Women of the MCC invite you to the Members' Dining Room on Thursday October 19, 2023 to celebrate leaders in business.

This year we are thrilled to hear from business and sport leaders Nicki Kenyon, Sharelle McMahon and Diana Taylor in conversation facilitated by MC, Jacqui Felgate.

With a combined experience of several decades in corporate and sporting sectors, we expect a spirited discussion about pursuing a purposeful career, while navigating issues of gender, leadership and sporting culture.

Presented by Morgan Stanley, the discussion will be held over breakfast and is the premier networking event for the MCC Women's Section.
