7th Indigenous Women's Leadership Summit

Pre-Summit Workshop: 28 August 2018
Summit: 29 & 30 August 2018
Post-Summit Workshop: 31 August 2018
Location: Novotel Darling Harbour

Despite volumes of research, leadership cannot be singularly defined and is perceived differently depending on cultural and national differences. However, it is inarguable that effective leadership is a notion of positive influence, as leadership is strengthened by our customs, beliefs and values.

The 7th Indigenous Women’s Leadership Summit provides an essential platform for aspiring, existing and emerging leaders. The summit creates a forum to share stories, wisdom and a passion for leading with the body, heart, soul and spirit. Discussions will delve into how we combine our cultural roles with the responsibilities of the business world. We will also explore strategies to effectively put ourselves forward for workplace opportunities.

This two-day event gathers Indigenous women from across the country to reflect on cultural heritage and refine leadership strengths as we pave the way for the next generation of Indigenous women leaders.
