Why this event

Back for its 4th Year, the Women In Public Sector Leadership Summit comes at a time when women need to have their voices heard.

We’ve discussed gender equality for decades. If the start of 2021 has taught us anything, it’s that women in Australia are sick of talking and not being listened to. Hundreds of thousands of women want their voices head by the highest office in the land, but no one is listening.

It’s time for that to change.

What is clear is that women can and do listen to other women. We want true gender equality, we want to be treated with respect and we want to know how to command that respect in our workplace.

Many organisations claim they are more committed to gender equality than ever before, it’s not translating into action fast enough. We still see a severe lack of women in senior roles, the gender pay gap still exists, and discrimination still takes place in the workplace.

Back to its fourth year, the Women in Public Sector Leadership Summit cannot deliver real change, but it does offer the perspectives, advice and knowledge from women that have made it to the top.

Join me at this event that is part inspiration, part education. The focus is to empower you to believe in yourself, put your hand up for opportunities and take your seat at the leadership table. You will learn what it took for our most senior women to flourish, how they stumbled, and most importantly, what they learned along the way so you can put that in your leadership kitbag and thrive.

The summit features inspiring keynotes, career-focused case studies, cutting panel discussions and interactive workshops from impressive women (and men) from Australia’s Public Sector and beyond.

It’s time for change. Time to seize the opportunities that are presented to you, make your own opportunities when they don’t appear, develop your leadership toolkit, harness your inner resilience, create safer workplaces and generate more meaningful change for future leaders.

In this forum, everyone is listening
