Women in Public Sector Leadership

Changing Cultures, Driving Better Performance

The need to address barriers inhibiting women's success in the workplace is now widely recognised. Recent discussions have highlighted that significant cultural change is required to achieve workplace equality. Are organisations doing as much as they can to support and promote women? Are women equipped with the tools they need to seize new career opportunities as they arise?  

IPAA WA presents Women in Leadership 2017, a full day conference that will provide you with an opportunity to hear from inspiring leaders and experts on how to meaningfully implement and take advantage of cultural change. Our line-up of exceptional presenters will help you discover how to harness your abilities to succeed and implement broader cultural change in your workplaces.
