This event is now SOLD OUT. But you can still attend through our Full Day Live Stream offering. Due to significant demand, The Tax Institute will be streaming the full day event - don’t miss out on this great event and these great discussions, sign up now and reserve your spot. Places are limited.

The influence of women is growing across our traditionally male-dominated profession. Yet, we still see too few women in leadership positions.

Addressing this issue, this full-day program is for women leaders, and for women who aspire to be leaders.

Focused on the challenges women face, speakers from the profession, business, government and beyond will share their stories and inspire you.

About the program

Eight sessions across the day will showcase many of Australia’s most influential leaders, who will offer their insights and share their experiences of building a career in a male-dominated profession.

Speakers from the profession, business, government and beyond will share their stories and inspire you:

  • Hear the lessons they learned along the way, how they defied the odds, and how they reinvented their roles and businesses.
  • Gain practical advice, solutions, and innovative ideas to help you take control of your career.
  • Discover the hidden barriers to women in the workplace and hear how others have overcome them.
