2017 Women in Leadership Summit Australia

Oprah famously said that “We can’t become what we need to be by remaining what we are”. We are faced with instances of choice and indecision every day of our lives. At work, it might be frustrating with the status quo, of being constantly passed over for a male colleague; it might be the feeling of fighting a no-win battle.

This year we are proud to support the Women in Leadership Summit. Their research identified the problems and challenges faced by modern Australian women – and with that in mind, they have assembled a speaker panel to share their real-life experiences that offer solutions to these problems and challenges.

The identified problems are similar and largely unchanged – gender inequality and balance; not being heard; no seat in the boardroom and so on… but the key as always is in finding the solution that works for you.

Hear from leaders from the world of Government, Banking, Utilities, Aerospace, Engineering, Finance, ICT, Construction, Real Estate, Property, Healthcare, Media, FMCG, Aviation Higher Education, Legal, Oil and Gas, Mining and Sport, Biotechnology and Defence.

Listen to Australian women who daily wear the many hats of role model, leader, and teacher and apply to yourself in order to make a difference wherever you are.

Get the most out of your mentor relationship by understanding how the different sexes experience cross-gender mentoring relationships differently and learn everything you need to know about mentoring the opposite sex.

Celebrate entrepreneurs who are in many ways emerging leaders; hear how they smashed start-up stereotypes and hustled their way to the top. Wear the heels of these women trailblazers as they share their experience and ask them how you can do the same. This event gives you the wherewithal to network, speak with and benefit from hundreds of women with stories to tell.

If you are not in, you can’t win. Put yourself out there. Get in the game. Enhance your network. Take the next step in closing the gender leadership gap – select your city here and join us at the Women in Leadership Summit.
