The 2nd Women in Leadership Tasmania Summit 2017

4 - 7 December 2017 - The Hobart Function and Conference Centre


Tasmania is well-known for its natural beauty and close-knit business community, but is rapidly growing as a hub for innovative and progressive leadership. With a major push and commitment from the state government to work towards an inclusive, respectful, fair and equitable workforce, now is the time to break down the barriers and see women promoted into roles based on merit. Although times are changing, we are still seeing a significant under representation of strong, capable and deserving female executives. Uncovering issues such as the unconscious bias is critical in gender diversity and success in the workforce. 

The 2nd Women in Leadership Tasmania Summit 2017 will provide a platform for existing and emerging leaders to learn from those women who have already made it. This event showcases the varied talents, skills and stories of successful leaders across industries such as manufacturing, government and business development.
