Pink Lady luncheon series to include incoming AusPost CEO Holgate as speaker

Konica Minolta is sponsoring the Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) and its Pink Lady luncheon series across Australia.

Konica Minolta says the Pink Lady luncheon series provides an opportunity to support Australians affected by breast cancer. Speakers at this year’s luncheons include: The Hon Dame Quentin Bryce, AD, CVO; Ita Buttrose, OA, OBE; Rosemary Vilgan, CEO, QSuper; The Hon Nick Greiner, AC; and Christine Holgate, incoming CEO of Australia Post.

Dr David Cooke, managing director, Konica Minolta Australia, says, “This year, as part of its expanding corporate social responsibility strategy, Konica Minolta Australia has increased its employee volunteer leave allowance to two days per year. We hope that many will choose to use this leave to support the luncheon as event volunteers.

“We are proud to partner with BCNA to continue to support its Pink Lady luncheon series, as it goes from strength to strength each year. The atmosphere at the events is always genuine; good people wanting to have a small impact where they can.”

Konica Minolta intern Dita Ardanis volunteered at the Sydney event and says, “The BCNA luncheon was such a rewarding experience where I got to meet new people, and listen to incredible stories from breast cancer survivors and family members of those who were diagnosed. It was inspiring to see everyone work as a team towards a common goal that touched each of us.”

Remaining luncheons include: Adelaide on September 12, Melbourne on October 11, and Canberra on October 25.

Konica Minolta says it is proud to support BCNA as one of its four key charity partners, and part of the company’s commitment to doing its part in making a better, more sustainable community.
