Prominent Greek women recognised by OEEGA NSW at International Women’s Day lunch


OEEGA NSW held its annual International Women’s Day luncheon over the weekend at The Grand Roxy, where four prominent women from the Greek community were presented with Awards of Excellence.

  • Her Excellency Mrs Martha Mavrommati, High Commissioner for the Republic of Cyprus, was honoured for her excellent service to the Cyprus Foreign Missions since 1993.
  • Mrs Poppy Anastasiadi – Mallianou was recognised not only for her multi-awarded creative works as author and poet, but also for her dedication to the promotion of the Greek Language through EELKA.
  • Mrs Myrianthi Sioris was celebrated for her devotion to the ideals of AHEPA and her philanthropical work, especially through AHEPA NSW Chapter IPPOKRATIS No 21.
  • Mrs Marina Efthimiou was honoured for her tireless work to preserve and promote Hellenic heritage and culture in multicultural Australia, as Vice President of the Hellenic Lyceum.

When asked about the lunch, Mrs Marina Efthimiou, said she was “humbled” to have been recognised for her work with the Hellenic Lyceum.

“I was incredibly humbled because I couldn’t do what I do without the help of all the people around me. Over 30 people came to support me on the day and they all deserve the award as well,” Mrs Efthimiou said.

“OEEGA have always been one of the few organisations supporting women and for that, I congratulate them for the work they do and hope they continue to prosper.”
