Event overview

At this forum, CEDA invites male and female leaders to engage in a way forward on gender equality: How do we lead with action to accelerate progress?

Join prominent thought-leader and founder of Male Champions of Change, Elizabeth Broderick, and our panel of industry leaders as we reflect on the progress, setbacks and clear areas of opportunity to create a more gender equal world. We discuss:

  • The impact and way forward for the Male Champions of Change strategy - what role can men and women play in influencing  workplace culture?
  • The economics of gender diversity: Why successful businesses make this a priority;
  • Leading with action and investing in systemic change;
  • Dismantling barriers and unconscious bias; and
  • Strategies for male-dominated industries

CEDA encourages both men and women to attend and participate in this important dialogue.
