Event overview

CEDA returns to Australia’s capital for an inclusive discussion on the importance of increasing diversity to enhance business productivity and overcoming imbalances in the country’s quest for workplace equality.

In a recent Worldwide Index of Women as Public Service Leaders report, Australia was found to be in the top 3 countries when it comes to women in public sector leadership roles, alongside Canada and the United Kingdom. Yet, it is recognised that more needs to be done.

While the public sector often leads in terms of gender balance, what impact does changing patterns of both government and employment have on government employers, private sector partners and members of the third sector?

CEDA’s Women in Leadership ACT discussion will examine:

  • Policy levers to ensure fair and equitable access to family caring responsibilities for women and men;
  • The impact on gender equity in a shifting public service - internal and downstream;
  • The current state of the nation - commitments to diversity, rigour and merit;
  • Delivering a consistent message to achieve greater equality at senior levels; and
  • Actions for future women leaders in the public, private and third sectors.
