4th Queensland Public Sector Women in Leadership Summit

Mercure Brisbane
Brisbane QLD

Significant progress has been made by the Queensland Government to increase diversity and gender equality in the public sector. Despite this progress, there is still a notable imbalance of gender representation in executive leadership roles across many departments and agencies. To level the playing field, aspiring female leaders must have the confidence and abilities to step up and seize opportunities for career development.

Women aspiring to advance their careers need to equip themselves with the resilience and drive to succeed in uncertain times. Possessing a refined and adaptable suite of skills puts aspiring leaders in a prime position to step up when professional opportunities arise.

The 4th Annual Queensland Public Sector Women in Leadership Summit 2018 will provide attendees with the tools to become an exceptional leader capable of navigating turbulent times. Inspirational speakers will impart valuable advice and help delegates communicate their vision of success. Attendees will gain the strategies to position themselves for leadership positions and seize every opportunity for career development.
