Women World Changers is one of Australasia’s largest events for critical debate on diversity. A dynamic summit attended by Australia’s top business, government and community leaders, Women World Changers features revolutionary speakers and an ambitious agenda that goes beyond reshaping the conversation to reshaping the game.

In 2017, we are delighted to welcome Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to President Barack Obama as leading keynote speaker. Throughout her tenure at the White House, Ms Jarrett championed the creation of equality and opportunity for all Americans, and economically and politically empowered women in the US and internationally.

With focus fixed firmly on equality for all, this one-day leadership event tackles diversity and gender equity challenges facing Australian organisations including politics, economics and socio-cultural factors.

Our stellar lineup of speakers from around the world will offer solution-based ideas from abroad and domestically to help all Australians thrive.

Women World Changers invites you to challenge your thinking, change the game, take action. Advance our economy and make our workplaces flourish.

Providing challenging perspectives from around the globe, Women World Changers 2017 drives thought provoking dialogue targeting today’s most pressing equality issues, including:

• The Politics of Equal Representation
• The Economic Imperatives for Equity and the Need for Women in the Innovation Process
• Beyond the Business Case For Diversity
• Parenting Parity and the Economic Value of Domestic vs Market-based Work
• Leadership - Unmaking the Myths of our Gendered Minds
• Power, Race and Priviledge
• Millennials - What They Really Want

This one day leadership event tackles diversity and equity challenges facing Australian organisations in order to challenge your thinking, change the game and inspire action.
