NSW Chapter Event - An International Women's Day Event

Women In Leadership

About the Topic

Join us Monday, 8 March 2021, on International Women’s Day, for a panel discussion with executive women in leadership.

The event showcases top female panelists, and role models to younger women and emerging leaders, whilst providing insights into their career journey and leadership pathways.  The panel will address how they have broken stereotypes to progress in a male dominated industry and how they navigated opportunities and balanced priorities throughout their career.  This event will provide a powerful opportunity for our attendees to ask questions, gain insight, inspiration and empowerment to navigate their career development during their journey to become our future generation of female leaders.
