Leadership and Culture: Breaking down the barriers

At CEDA's last Women in Leadership event in Victoria, Deloitte, Managing Partner Victoria, Geoff Roberts, told the audience:  

"Diversity of thought is a competitive advantage. It leads to innovation and risk mitigation if you get it right, but only diversity plus inclusion leads to better business outcomes."

If this true, why are women still underrepresented in leadership positions in Australia?

Join CEDA for the second event in the Victorian Women in Leadership series which will discuss:

  • The barriers to increasing female participation in the workforce and progression into leadership roles;
  • The significance and influence of organisational culture and leadership on the engagement, retention and promotion of women;
  • What leaders can do to cultivate a dynamic and rewarding culture within their organisation that values diversity; and
  • What measures organisations can introduce, or avoid, in order to develop a culture that promotes the increased participation, retention and progression of women.

CEDA's Women in Leadership event series aims to advance the discussion about women as leaders, as well as discuss the changes required to keep women in employment and move more women into leadership and senior management positions, especially given that Australia's productivity remains a key issue.
