WELCOME TO THE PUBLIC SECTOR WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP SUMMIT
I am truly thrilled to be joining you all at the Women in Leadership Summit in November and I look forward to meeting many of you there.
Events like these are such wonderful opportunities to connect with incredible and inspiring women and hear more about their experiences - but importantly it’s also an opportunity for ALL us to learn more about the challenges that many of us are facing and in turn the ways that many of you are pushing through those challenges and breaking down the barriers you face in the world.
I love the idea that this summit will also celebrate the legacies that are being built by brilliant woman. It’s an important thing to remember – often we can get caught up focusing on the challenges, forgetting to take the time and marvel at some of the achievements of those before and around us.
Unfortunately, we know that at times women need to be reminded of the value that they bring at work, in their community and at home – to unlock that value, we need access to more opportunity as well as inclusive, safe and collaborative workplaces. I’m interested to see the insights from some of the speakers and hear how we can all build more inclusive and safe workspaces.
UN Women Australia are proud to been given the opportunity to partner with the Women in Leadership Summit and we are pleased to announce that 10 per cent of all ticket sales will be going towards UN Women programs and initiatives around the world – working to advance gender equality for women and girls everywhere.
This is a wonderful opportunity to come together and explore some of the complex issues that are facing women in leadership – I hope you will you join me there.
