JOIN THE CONVERSATION
Established in 2006, the Symposiums are a powerful national platform for dialogue around women’s leadership and gender equity. Connecting the highest office holders and policy makers with the experiences of everyday women, the Symposiums put a spotlight on critical national issues and advocate for widespread, long-term change.
The Symposiums are a safe and inclusive space. We welcome all people who are open to being in a woman-centred space regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability or age.
AUSTRALIA’S PREMIER WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP EVENTS
Showcasing a diverse mix of high-profile and respected thought leaders, the Australian Women’s Leadership Symposiums have become synonymous with excellence and achievement across all facets of business and community leadership.
Addressing topics such as gender equity, leadership, career advancement and life fulfillment, the Symposiums represent an important annual opportunity for women to connect, learn, share their experiences and be inspired.
