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.

Highlights from the 2019 Women in Public Sector Leadership Summit
Speaker Line-up for 2021:
Partnerships Now Open!
Every woman who is pregnant or has a new baby should be surrounded with the supports they need during this important time. However, not every woman has shelter, stability or support. Some may be at risk of violence, experience homelessness or be completely isolated. For over 22 years, Karinya House has provided immediate support for women in the Canberra Region who are pregnant or have new babies and have nowhere else to turn.
