CATO's International Women's Day Lunch has become an important event on the CATO calendar, honouring many of the extraordinary talent among CATO's female members.

The 2024 CATO IWD Lunch will feature a keynote presentation from renowned Australian Author, Travel Writer, Environmentalist, and Creative Mentor, Nina Karnikowski.

With a distinguished career spanning a decade in travel writing, Nina Karnikowski has shifted the narrative towards travel that not only explores but also conserves and uplifts. Karnikowski's work demonstrates the transformative power of travel in addressing social and environmental challenges, providing an insightful perspective on the positive impact that conscientious travel can have on the world.

The event will also feature a dynamic panel discussion, bringing together a group of aspirational future female leaders from within the CATO membership. The focus will be on celebrating and empowering the emerging talent in the travel industry.
