Unique Leadership of Minority Women Conference
A transformational conference to understand the leadership of women from minority groups in Australia and explore how organisations can advance Diversity and Inclusion.
Women from minority groups are the least represented in leadership in Australia.
Whilst Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace focuses on including employees from minority groups so that organisations benefit from their different talent and experiences, Diversity and Inclusion does not pivotally recognise the leadership of members of minority groups.
Further to the findings of the Unique Leadership of Minority Women 2017 Report to be launched at this event, this Conference aims to advance:
- an understanding of the leadership of women from minority groups in relation to its emergence, scope and power
- an understanding of the challenges minority women face accessing leadership opportunities
- an understanding of the significance of advancing the paradigm for diversity and inclusion to recognising the rich leadership status and potential of minority women for organisations
- an understanding of how organisations can make visible the leadership of minority women and capitalise from their unique leadership strengths
This conference traverses many areas to do with diversity and inclusion; organisational culture and development; HR; leadership and management; equality; gender equality and social reform. It is suited to CEO’s & MDs, Diversity and Inclusion managers, HR Directors, General Managers and Middle management.
