Women in Leadership: the five-year journey

Women in Leadership: the five-year journey

WA
Aug 13
Following the release of the Committee for Perth's excellent "Filling the Pool" report, CEDA is honoured to welcome two inspirational leaders - Tom O'Leary, Managing Director, Wesfarmers Chemicals, Energy and Fertilisers, and Elizabeth Broderick - to provide their views on the past, but more importantly on the present and future, of the gender equality landscape.

Speakers

Elizabeth Broderick AO, Sex Discrimination Commissioner, Australian Human Rights Commission
Tom O'Leary, Managing Director, Wesfarmers Chemicals, Energy and Fertilisers

Event overview

Elizabeth Broderick is speaking in WA for the last time in her current role as Australia’s Sex Discrimination Commissioner.

Earlier in 2015, CEDA released our publication, CEDA’s Top 10 Speeches: Women in Leadership 2010-2015.

Join us as we reflect on the journey to date, encompassing both the positive changes and the rate of progress.

This event will address questions including:

  • How far have we really come on gender equality?
  • What is required to create more gender-equal workplaces in the future, and ultimately, a more gender-equal world?
  • Why is action on gender equity good for society and business?

CEDA is committed to engaging all business leaders in this important conversation and is striving for equal representation of both genders in the room. Please aim for 50/50 gender balance when inviting your corporate table guests.

All guests will receive a copy of CEDA’s Top 10 Speeches: Women in Leadership 2010-2015.

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 is currently delivering a digital program of public events, podcasts and virtual Trustee roundtable discussions; hybrid events with both a livestream and audience in attendance; and face-face events, where there is member demand and they can be delivered in accordance with government health advice for a specific state.

For face-to-face gatherings, CEDA is working closely with our hosts and venues to ensure that social distancing can be maintained and facilities and equipment have been properly sanitised. Attendance numbers will strictly adhere to government guidelines for each state.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.
