‘Spirit of women’ to soar at uplifting event

Celebrate the remarkable spirit of women making waves on the Sunshine Coast at Altitude Nine's first International Women's Day event.


The achievements and journeys of inspirational women will be shared and celebrated in a special event at a towering new Sunshine Coast venue.

Altitude Nine, on the top floor of Sunshine Coast City Hall in the Maroochydore City Centre, will be hosting an evening to remember in honour of International Women’s Day (IWD) 2024.

You’re invited to experience breathtaking views from the newly opened boutique venue, where three extraordinary local women will take centre stage and share their stories of success, resilience and empowerment.

Held on Friday, March 8, from 6pm-9pm, this evening cocktail-style gathering will see attendees treated to a sunset drink on arrival along with grazing platters, light canapes, entertainment and an opportunity to connect with the community.

Celebrate the remarkable spirit of women making waves on the Sunshine Coast, including special guest Jordyn James, owner and artistic director of Burlesque L’amour.

Jordyn boasts a passion for dance and providing a safe, nurturing, empowering and inspirational space for women to dance and express themselves.

Through her business she has directed and performed in over 16 shows, supported and hosted five charity shows, created a DanceFit program for young adults living with a disability and been a finalist in both Australian of the Year in 2019 and Business Woman of the Year in 2021.

Economic and Community Development Group Executive Greg Laverty said he welcomed the opportunity for Altitude Nine to host its first inspiring International Women’s Day event to celebrate achievements and raise awareness of women’s equality.

“Altitude Nine provides the perfect location to celebrate women’s accomplishments, reflect on progress and explore this year’s theme to #InspireInclusion,” Mr Laverty said.

“The Sunshine Coast has an incredible community of inspiring women and what better way to share their stories and celebrate their resilience than with a dedicated event at a place of elevation and in a space designed to lift others up.”

About International Women’s 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.

IWD has occurred for more than a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere.

The theme this year is ‘Count Her In’ – exploring pathways to greater economic inclusion for women.
