3rd Annual

Women in Leadership Roadshow 2018

Canberra – Thursday 14th June 2018








‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.’ – Former United States Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright

In 2015 there was still an estimated *80-Years ahead of us before Australia would reach true workplace equality. With significant inequalities in the areas of pay and promotion opportunities, it’s important to realise we need to be more ambitious if we are to bring about equality in our lifetime.

In 2018 the need to take action is paramount if the Public Sector is to make any significant advancements in balancing gender inequality.

Public Sector Network’s 3rd Annual Women in Leadership 1-day Roadshow delivers practical sessions and transferable knowledge to transform your department, showing you how to make a real, and lasting, difference in creating true workplace gender equality.
