Are you struggling to form a roadmap for your career? Wondering if it’s possible to make a positive difference at work? Unsure of how to become an influential leader?  While we have made some progress with gender equity in the workplace, there’s still more work to be done.   
 
The Annual Women in Leadership Summit returns to Melbourne for the 6th time to inspire and empower leaders across all industries.  Learn and be inspired by Victoria’s top leaders and take the next step in your career by engaging with coaches in focused interactive sessions.

Workshop Overview 

 
STEP IN. SPEAK UP. STAND OUT. 
 
Being great at your job is not always enough to move your career forward. Research shows that women face greater barriers to advancement and a harder path to senior leadership, but it doesn't have to be this way. With access to the unwritten rules of a male dominated environment, we can strategically manage our careers and leadership brands in a way that works for us. 
 
This is not about turning you into someone you’re not; it’s about simple yet powerful techniques for navigating your career, finding your voice and taking your place at the table.  It’s about building presence, improving visibility and strategically managing the right professional impact.
