Women in Leadership


CEDA has successfully held Women in Leadership events since 2010 and in 2017, CEDA continues this discussion.

Over the last six years, CEDA has held more than 100 events across Australia seeking to engender discussion about Women in Leadership. Over 250 presentations have been delivered at these events where over 16,000 people attended.
