Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Are you a woman who works in corporate, runs a startup or perhaps works across both sectors and interested in the future of work? Do you recognise that the way we work is changing and that we need to come up with new and innovative ways to do business?

Then we encourage you to come along to The Intersection. The first in a series of events to connect women across corproate and entrepreneurship.

The reality is we are currently facging "the most significant disruption in the world of work since the industrial revolution." Economic changes are transforming work through automation, globalisation and more flexible work." The 2015 Foundation For Young Australia's Future of Work Report.

The unprecedented pace of change means organisations large and small require a new approach to problem solving and a different organisational archetype. One that relies less on hierarchy and silos, with predictable five-year strategies, and more on vision, collaboration and business model innovation that uses iterative test and learn approaches to idea validation.

Corporates are recognising the need to adapt. In Australia we are seeing a growing trend of big corporates taking a more collaborative approach to working with the startup sector - Alex Gruszka, StartupAus head of data and insights.

One Roof is on a bold mission to become the intersection at which women working in corporate and women running startups connect, support one another, share ideas and resources and solve problems together.

We have an impressive panel of high profile women who will share their thoughts and ideas on the future of work and how we can better collaborate.
