Event overview

CEDA’s Women in Leadership series returns to ask why gender inequality persists in the modern workplace and examines how perceptions, reward, and recognition fuel this inequality.

Young female leaders in the 21st century are part of a new cohort of women who have grown up with many rights that were not afforded to the generations of women before them.

However, regardless of social and economic progress, deep inertia in important areas of working life related to perception, reward and recognition not only pose as challenges for women but will continue to create barriers constraining our nation’s prosperity.

This event will explore:

  • Ensuring fair and equitable access to the career opportunities and entitlements;
  • Addressing the ‘motherhood penalty’ and enabling fair and equitable participation in the workplace;
  • Moving from mentorship to sponsorship to further career progression; and
  • Societal attitudes to parenting and the difference in how mothers and fathers are perceived in the workplace.
