Stop Fixing Women: A Circuit Breaker to Finally Deliver Change

EEON is delighted to present a keynote by leading commentator on women and the workforce, an award-winning journalist and author Catherine Fox.

Most organisations in Australia are investing in gender equity initiatives, with a clearer understanding and rationale for these efforts. But despite all the activity, the pace of change has been glacial.

It’s time to take a new approach and ditch accepted practices to finally move the dial, according to Catherine.

She will examine current and contemporary thinking and practice in gender equity, looking at ways you and your organisation can engage, empower and enable the work. From immediate and personal actions you can take to improve gender equity in your workplace, to addressing some of the systemic and structural barriers that still persist; we all have a part to play.

We will once again include interactive technology during the seminar so that you can come prepared with questions and be part of the conversation. A Q&A session will follow the keynote.

Please encourage your colleagues (including male champions of change) in your workplace to attend this session. All welcome.
