WE’RE BACK FOR OUR 7TH YEAR!
For seven spectacular years, we’ve celebrated the resilience, voice, and transformative leadership of women across Australia. An unprecedented wave of women have taken up leadership roles. Workplaces are transitioning towards greater inclusivity, with conversations changing from mere issues to actionable solutions.
As the pendulum swings towards gender equality, the message is clear: It’s YOUR time!
2023 is more than just another year on the calendar; it’s a loud declaration. A call for women to rise, to step forward, to lead.
While the horizon gleams with promise, vast challenges still lie ahead. The harsh reality remains: many women continue to face workplace biases, challenges, and, sadly, harassment. Despite our strides, top leadership roles still see a limited representation of women. We made noise with the March 4 Justice, but our journey has just begun.
It’s your time. Today.
This isn’t just another summit. It’s a clarion call.
It’s your time to step into your power, your purpose, and your potential. It’s your time to amplify your voice and be a beacon of change. It’s your time to gather, network, and fuel momentum.
Join us at the Women in Leadership Summit 2023 to pave the way for the future you’ve always dreamt of. Recognise the strengths you wield, the impact you create, and the path you’re destined to carve.
You’ll immerse yourself in valuable insights from pioneering women who’ve battled odds, broken barriers, and built legacies. Women from multifaceted backgrounds and experiences who’ll share not just the highs but the lows, the challenges, and the lessons.
The Women in Leadership Summit doesn’t claim to be an overnight solution to gender disparities or a shortcut to your dream role, but it does promise to serve as a beacon, illuminating the path with experiences and lessons from a spectrum of accomplished women, each charting their unique path to leadership.

This is an initiative of Australia’s infrastructure and transport ministers who agreed to the Women in Transport Initiative at the Infrastructure and Transport Ministers’ Meeting (ITMM) in May 2021.
