Re-Ignite!

Back for its 5th year, the Women in Leadership Summit 2020 comes at unique time in history!

What are the opportunities for women in leadership in a post COVID – 19 Environment?

This year’s theme is Re-Ignite. We’ve had so much to worry about in the last six months. Now is the time to reignite the passion for diversity and equality in the workplace, re-ignite our desires to move up and be seen, re-ignite the fire for pay equality and shared parental responsibility. Let’s create our own opportunities while helping and inspiring those around us.

Let’s face it. More companies than ever before say they are more committed to gender equality. But we’re experiencing the most disruptive time in modern history. What will this mean in the fight for equality? We still have a striking lack of women in senior roles, especially the C-Suite. We still see a huge gender pay gap and we still experience discrimination in both wages and the workplace.

How can women cut through these infuriating statistics and break into the C-suite? How can senior women create more opportunities for the next generation? How can organisations become real agents of change? How do we implement this is the post COVID – 19 world?

WILS 2020 is an educationally-focused event that helps you along your leadership path.Featuring inspiring keynotes, career-focused case studies, cutting panel discussions and interactive workshops, your leadership journey starts and continues with us.

We’ll inspire you to become an authentic leader, equip you with the skills and strategies to add maximum value to your organisation and show you how to cultivate meaningful change for future generations.

WILS 2020. Let’s do this.
