Advancing Women in Leadership

Advancing Women in Leadership

While Australia is making progress on many aspects of gender equality, female representation in leadership continues to be a cause for concern. Women are underrepresented at leadership and management levels in Australian workplaces. This workshop will look at behaviours and techniques for women leaders, helping them assess and build their skills to allow them to achieve their full potential.

  • Women are underrepresented in key decision-making roles across almost all industries in the Australian workforce. WGEA 2019-20 data shows that while women make up half of the private sector workforce (50.5%), women make up only:

    • 32.5% of key management positions
    • 28.1% of directors
    • 18.3% of CEOs
    • 14.6% of board chairs.

    While Australia is making progress on many aspects of gender equality, female representation in leadership continues to be a cause for concern. So why do men continue to hold many of the leadership positions in government and industry? What do women need to do to make sure their voices are heard equally in their place of business?

    In this workshop, we will look at behaviours and techniques for women leaders that will help them assess and build their skills to allow them to achieve their full potential.
