Event overview

Organisations are increasingly being ranked and rated by employees, external stakeholders and civil society with regard to gender equality in the workplace. 

While organisations benefit from a culture where diversity, inclusion and flexible work arrangements are the norm rather than the exception, certain professions and industries struggle to attract and retain top female talent. 

What is needed is a change within business-cultural thinking that champions an inclusive workplace culture, respects diversity and promotes equal opportunity. 

CEDA NSW final Women in Leadership discussion for 2015 will examine:

  • Organisational and leadership strategies to actively develop, promote and advance inclusiveness to ensure greater equal access to promotion opportunities;
  • Setting appropriate targets and reporting structures to bring clarity to organisational vision;
  • How to identify and overcome existing cultural barriers; and
  • Overcoming traditional barriers – blazing successful trails in male dominated industries.

CEDA is committed to engaging with all leaders. Please consider gender balance when registering colleagues or inviting guests onto corporate tables.
