Women in A/AA Brisbane Summit 2019

We are making some very exciting changes, to revamp our WA/AA summits this year and ensure they continue give great value for your time and money. We listened to the 2018 summit feedback and we're now building a new program, that will be more interactive and engaging for you!

This year, the summits will focus on how we, both men and women can engage the future through STEM and how we can encourage a more inclusive and diverse workforce. Discussing the barriers and opportunities for women in the industry, we will ask the tough questions and address how we can close the gender gap. What will it take for us to encourage more women to study STEM and what will take for us to encourage more women to pursue a career in STEM?

You will get to have your say, as will have breakout sessions, mini workshops, group conversations, engaging panel discussions, and speakers from diverse industry backgrounds with Q&A after each! We have already secured a fantastic line-up of speakers for all three summits and we cannot wait to share who they are with you soon!

To top it off we have secured Learning Facilitator/Director of Seedling CTS, Simon Wood to MC the day. Simon has over 20 years’ experience, in helping clients achieve results through leadership and executive coaching. He will be assisting A/AA in building the WA/AA summit program, with the aim to make it impactful, valuable and FUN for all attendees.

The learnings won’t end when the day ends – we will focus on embedding the learnings beyond the summit day, to encourage attendees to take them back in to their workplace and encourage others to support the changes needed.

FULL LIST OF SPEAKERS COMING SOON.
