"While Lucky Singh, a community leader, actor, writer and teacher, had an amazing story about her 'Guru Nanak's Free Kitchenette' which provides food and winter needs for homeless people in Sydney.
"Cumberland Council group manager community and culture, Brooke Endycott, talked to us about overseeing the council's community related services and shared her challenges  in breaking the glass ceiling in the public service.
"Shobana Suresh, an Indian classical dancer and a trauma counsellor with refugee children and adolescents, also expressed her experiences managing work, art and family and performed a beautiful dance with her husband Mr Suresh at the end of the presentation."
