Ms JODI McKAY ( Strathfield ) ( 13:42 ): I bring to the attention of the House the wonderful work of Sue Advani, the 2017 Strathfield Woman of the Year. Sue is an active and much admired ambassador for the Australian subcontinental community and a steadfast champion and advocate for women's issues. She has held many community roles and responsibilities in organisations such as the United Indian Association [UIA] and as a member of the Federal Government's Multicultural Consultative Committee, the Ethnic Communities Council of NSW and BreastScreen NSW.
Sue's role as the Chair of the UIA Women's Steering Committee has been especially inspiring as she raises awareness of domestic and family violence, breast cancer research and gender equality. Sue also dedicates much of her time to raising funds for charities including the National Breast Cancer Foundation, White Ribbon Day and Pink Ribbon Day. Sue is a community leader for all women. On behalf of our community, I thank Sue for her many years of dedicated service.
