Orana Support Service (OSS) is calling on women to celebrate their social, economic, cultural and political achievements this International Women's Day.
International Women's Day is an annual global celebration which runs each year on March 8 as a focal point in the movement of women's rights.
The global theme for 2021 is 'Women in Leadership: Achieving an Equal Future in a COVID-19 World'.
This year OSS will host an International Women's Day Dinner for women of all cultural backgrounds in the Oran region to come together in unity and empower and celebrate one another.
Two 'outstanding' women who have made impact within the community have also been invited to share their stories on the night as guest speakers.
Ambereen Khalid and Dr Asha Jacob will both be speaking about their own unique journeys to success. Ms Khalid is a Pakistani-born teacher who moved to Dubbo five years ago and has since established herself not only as an educator and trainer, but also as a leader within the community.
Ms Khalid said she wants to encourage women to participate in cultural projects and events to promote and celebrate the benefits of a 'vibrant and culturally diverse life'.
Also sharing their story on the night will be Dr Jacob who was born in Nigeria to Doctors of Indian extraction.
Dr Jacob moved to Dubbo in 2006 and worked at Dubbo hospital before moving her focus to working as a general practitioner. Dr Jacob said she is passionate about paediatrics, women's health and mental health.
