About the workshop

Women equate to 57% of staff in tertiary education within Australia. However, they hold only 30% of leadership positions. The benefits of diversity are well known and imperative in identifying catalysts that will redress gender inequality within the workplace. In this constantly evolving sector, authentic and resilient leadership in the face of change is pivotal to success.

In this workshop, you will be encouraged to think about your organisation holistically and to understand the opportunities and avenues in which you can be an effective change agent. Expert facilitation will allow you to explore the unique skills required to lead effectively in education. Practical and interactive sessions will equip you with the strategies and techniques to enable you to reach your full potential, to pursue your chosen career path and to achieve success.
