Event overview

This panel of business leaders, champions of change, authors and practitioners will share their insights and experiences in understanding and transforming the cultural dynamics that can influence gender-based parity in organisations.

Interpreting and addressing the cultural, social, psychological and leadership forces within organisations is the first step in creating change. Awareness of conscious and unconscious cultural biases, mindsets and role models, and the implications of specific sexual gender dynamics, are key traits of organisations that are successfully navigating this complex and entrenched issue.

CEDA showcases a diverse range of presentations focused on tackling transitional change through knowledge, awareness, courage, reflection and cultural understanding. As CEDA's popular Women in Leadership series continues, we welcome both males and females who strive for change.

Public event advice – Coronavirus

At CEDA we are proud to regularly convene and engage speakers and audiences as an essential element of our efforts to broaden discussion and debate of the most important policy issues facing Australia. In doing so, our first priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff.

CEDA remains true to its purpose of providing platforms to inform and promote debate of critical issues and driving policy solutions and are continuing critical discussions for Australia’s economic, social and environmental development through a digital events program including exclusive livestreams, podcasts and video, as well as our virtual Trustee roundtable discussions.

CEDA is also moving to deliver hybrid events that include a livestream and a small audience in attendance. CEDA has worked with venues to ensure that social distancing can be maintained and facilities and equipment have been properly sanitised. Attendance numbers adhere to government guidelines.
In line with government advice we request people that are unwell with cough or fever or other respiratory symptoms do not attend CEDA events. We also ask that you follow government advice and maintain social distancing by refraining from shaking hands or exchanging physical greetings, and wherever possible, staying at least 1.5 metres away from others.

CEDA will continue to closely monitor government advice regarding public gatherings and act on relevant health advice from the Australian government in relation to COVID-19.
