Public Sector Women in Leadership Summit 2021


Tuesday 16th - Friday 19th November 2021

Women make up 60% of the APS, with the majority of these women holding positions at a classification of EL2 and below, peaking at the APS4 level where 70% of positions are held by women. To break this apparent glass ceiling, almost every department and agency has set ambitious targets to appoint women to senior leadership roles, which means that there is currently a tremendous opportunity for you to move further into leadership.

Stepping up your leadership can be daunting, and the leaders we look up to can seem superhuman from the outside. It’s easy to forget that they are just ordinary people, and that they have learned to harness their strengths and gained their own wisdom to achieve extraordinary things. Gain their wisdom and learn how you can harness your strengths at the Public Sector Women in Leadership Summit 2021. Join us to gain insights from senior leaders, share experiences with your peers, hear incredible stories of courage and be inspired to lead with confidence.
