Property Council partners with ovarian cancer charity

A leading property industry association has announced a new partnership with Ovarian Cancer Australia to raise awareness and funds.

At a Sydney event focusing on senior women leaders in the financial services sector, the Property Council of Australia’s NSW diversity committee announced it had decided to support the organisation that focuses on improving outcomes for women with ovarian cancer, which still has very low survival rates.

Jane Fitzgerald, executive director at Property Council NSW, commented: “Each year in Australia around 1,500 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer and more than 1,000 die from the disease.

“Around 75 per cent of women are diagnosed at an advanced stage and currently only 43 per cent of women with ovarian cancer will be alive five years later.

“We need to ensure women can be diagnosed earlier when they have an 80 per cent chance of being alive and staying well five years later.”

Paula Benson, chair of Ovarian Cancer Australia said the two organisations will work together to make a positive difference to the lives of those impacted by ovarian cancer.

She commented: “We are thrilled to forge this partnership together to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer in the community and to help reduce the number of women who will die from this devastating disease.”

The event held on Tuesday at the EY offices in Sydney saw nearly 200 women in finance gather to hear from industry leaders Ming Long and Sally Hermann talk about their personal leadership journeys and insights.
