About the Conference

Google the statistics of women working in government. You’ll see women make up 59% of the Australian Public Service.

It’s a different story at the executive level – women only represent 43% of leadership roles. It’s even less in parliament, with a mere 32% representation.

While the Public Sector is leading the way in many aspect of gender equality, it is clear that much remains to be done before we reach true equality.

The Women in Public Sector Leadership Summit 2019 is here to contribute to this journey by empowering you to attain more leadership positions. Hear inspiring and practical stories of leadership success so you can go back to your workplace and enact  meaningful change in your career.

Take home inspiring stories from Australian and International leaders on how they achieved success and learn how you can implement change in your organisation.

Exploring the themes of empowerment, opportunity and self-determination with keynotes from Julie Bishop, former aide to the Obama’s Dana Lewis, Georgie Gardner and Nova Peris, this is an event not to be missed.
