Established in 2017, the Symposium is a powerful national platform for dialogue around women’s leadership and gender equity. Connecting the highest office holders and policy makers with the experiences of everyday women, the Symposium puts a spotlight on critical national issues and advocates for widespread, long-term change.
The Symposium is a safe and inclusive space. We welcome all people who are open to being in a woman-centred space regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability or age.
An unrivalled opportunity to learn from some of the country’s most respected women leaders and role models.
Every year, women from diverse backgrounds come together to share their experiences and engage in lively discussion and debate around the issues that really matter.
