Event description

Description

For women, 2017 was in many ways an extraordinary year. The allegations of sexual harassment in the film industry drove the already existing #MeToo movement to global prominence and catalysed efforts to address “systemic inequality and injustice in the workplace that have kept underrepresented groups from reaching their full potential” (Time’s Up, 2018). The Women’s Marches, both 2017 and 2018 editions, were some of the most multitudinous demonstrations in record. Women are rallying in an unprecedented way. In this environment, defining an agenda for the future is a critical move.

Join the Centre for Workplace Leadership's notable panel of male and female leaders including Professor Cordelia Fine (University of Melbourne), author and journalist Catherine Fox and Dr Victor Sojo (Centre for Workplace Leadership) for a discussion about the most pressing and strategic actions for the gender equality movement in Australia and worldwide. Two further panellists are yet to be confirmed.

Time: 6:15pm-7:15pm with canapes and drinks served post-panel

Venue: Room 2002, The Spot, 198 Berkeley Street, University of Melbourne

PLEASE NOTE: CWL counts on and appreciates the strong interest in this topic from female attendees. At the same time, we are committed to encouraging men, especially senior managers, to listen, learn, and include their voice in the discussion around gender equality. As we look to drive change in organisations, this event strongly encourages male and female attendees to bring a male colleague (partners and relatives excluded) to ensure engagement in this subject is as widespread and inclusive as possible.
