40 Symposium Attendance Grants Available (valued at over $65,000)


We’re offering full attendance grants to women and gender-diverse people who play active leadership roles in their community but are unable to attend due to lack of funding or employer support.

These grants cover the full ticket price for the recipient to attend the Symposium of their choice. 

Through this initiative we’re supporting the development of a pipeline of leaders in different communities, and ensuring diverse views are represented at the events. 

The grants will be awarded to current and aspiring women and gender diverse leaders.
