Event overview

Professional women have made significant progress in recent years in the workplace.

However, there are still prominent disparities that prevent women from reaching their full potential or desired work situation. Pay inequity and inflexible organisational practices are still common.

CEDA's popular Women in Leadership forum, returning to Canberra, will explore the risk-taking and empowerment strategies women can employ to overcome these biases.

The government is heading into the 2013 election having introduced measures to assist women in their careers and family life. Future policies can build on such steps.

Speakers will address the status quo and explore how women can leverage their key strengths to achieve their leadership goals.

At CEDA we are proud to regularly convene and engage speakers and audiences as an essential element of our efforts to broaden discussion and debate of the most important policy issues facing Australia. In doing so, our first priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff.

CEDA remains true to its purpose of providing platforms to inform and promote debate of critical issues and driving policy solutions and are continuing critical discussions for Australia’s economic, social and environmental development through a digital events program including exclusive livestreams, podcasts and video, as well as our virtual Trustee roundtable discussions.

CEDA is also moving to deliver hybrid events that include a livestream and a small audience in attendance. CEDA has worked with venues to ensure that social distancing can be maintained and facilities and equipment have been properly sanitised. Attendance numbers adhere to government guidelines.
In line with government advice we request people that are unwell with cough or fever or other respiratory symptoms do not attend CEDA events. We also ask that you follow government advice and maintain social distancing by refraining from shaking hands or exchanging physical greetings, and wherever possible, staying at least 1.5 metres away from others.
