Event overview

The opening session of CEDA's highly regarded Women in Leadership series will address Gender diversity - closing the gap once and for all. This session will bring together, business leaders and leading commentators on what policies are required to effect change at all levels with a particular focus on the key economic indicator of gender pay gaps.

Women experience a gender pay gap of 17.5 per cent between their male counterparts and commentators state the gender pay gap has scarcely moved in 30 years, with some indicators showing a backwards trend.

In this important election year - which will determine the future of working generations - this session marks an important and timely opportunity to debate and discuss gender diverse policy.

Speakers will examine:

  • The path of women's progress - how far have we really come?
  • ASX's diversity-based recommendations - trends and track records
  • Positive change from the top - visible and measurable efforts by business
  • Politicking gender diversity - time for earnest discussions at the senior level of politics or, rather, has it been tainted and now marred?
