Back yourself for success

This event will be livestreamed!

From April 2020, all our events will be available to livestream. To access this ticket, simply choose the ‘Livestream’ option rather than the location when completing your booking.

 

Now is your time.

You have more opportunities for personal and career success than any other woman in history.

But you have to back yourself. Take risks. Grow your network. Get noticed. Be Bold.

The Women in Public Sector Leadership Summit 2020 is bringing together public sector leaders to share their journeys, both failures and successes with one aligned goal – to empower women to believe in themselves, put their hand up for opportunities and take their seat at the leadership table.

 

What You’ll Learn at the Women in Public Sector Leadership Summit 2020:

Develop an executive management toolkit and roadmap


Become an authentic leader and stay true to your values


Identify opportunities and take risks to get ahead in your career


Become an advocate for women in your organisation and help open doors


Comfortably deal with difficult situations and hard conversations


Develop the infrastructure for equality and strategies that work!

 

Gala Dinner

Join us at the Gala Dinner on the 20th May where you’ll get the chance to network with leaders from all over the country all while enjoying a gourmet three course dinner. Relax after the first day of the conference and take the chance discuss the days learning over a sparkling glass of wine. Gain insightful new ideas as you hear from our charity partner speaker, Esther Bogart, Karinya House Committee Member and then put on your dancing shoes and join us on the dance floor for night of celebration.

About Our Charity Partner – Karinya House

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.
