The 2017 LG Professionals WA Women’s Forum will give you tools to change the conversation and culture in your workplace—to move your organisation towards greater inclusivity and gender equality.
This forum is for men and women, because inclusivity is important for us all.
A growing body of research evidence tells us that a gender-balanced workplace delivers considerable benefits for an organisation, including better decision‑making and stronger performance across a range of measures.
This forum calls to anyone who wants to be inspired to generate inclusivity and parity in their workplace. Wherever you are in your organisation, you can make a difference—and this conference will give you some skills to respond to challenges and trigger change.
You will take away a better understanding of the current gender equality landscape in local government and the challenges we face in this sector.
We will share experiences, case studies and stories to shine a light on the issues. You will leave the forum armed with insights about what others are doing to achieve more gender equality and a longer-term perspective on changes that have already occurred throughout the sector.
Best of all, you will pick up some skills you can apply day-to-day to change the way people interact in your organisation and to tackle gender-based barriers you meet in your work.
We have designed a program for you that balances stimulating speakers, thought-provoking case-studies, interactive mentoring and engaging panel sessions. Networking opportunities will round out the experience.
So, come along and join like-minded local government colleagues for two days of inspiration, exploration and networking.
