Event overview

CEDA has been at the forefront of thought leadership on Women in Leadership, a public policy program which highlights the challenges of leadership roles for women, and to determine the best ways to overcome those challenges.

Since its launch in 2010, CEDA’s Women in Leadership series has examined why women continue to be under represented in leadership positions, barriers to equality of opportunity in the workforce, unconscious bias in the workplace, community and society, and tax arrangements and childcare.

For the inaugural NSW event in the 2015 Women in Leadership Series, CEDA presents a distinguished line-up of speakers who will examine:

  • Progress or pitfalls since 2010
  • The connotations and implications to being perceived as overly ambitious.
  • Entrenched social and cultural beliefs prescribing leadership based on gender.
  • The changing look and feel of leadership on the public stage - managing your personal brand.

To celebrate and acknowledge CEDA’s long-term commitment in this important public policy discourse, CEDA will be releasing a special Women in Leadership publication â€“ a compilation of the most influential, inspiring and thought provoking speeches delivered at CEDA Women in Leadership events across Australia over the past five years. All participants will receive a complimentary copy of the publication.
