The in-person Summits that we all love are returning in 2021! 

The priority is providing professional development and network opportunities that will enable women to achieve their full potential, lift workplace engagement, inspire, motivate, and create professional connections. The events are also focused on promoting diversity and inclusion across the public sector.

You are encouraged to attend if you are:

  • ready for your first people or thought leader role
  • looking for career progression in the public sector
  • a champion of, or in a business role supporting diversity and inclusion in the public sector

This year's events will include inspiring opening and closing keynote speakers, plenary sessions, breakout topics, interactive sessions and networking activities. Check back soon for links to full details.

Group bookings (5+ people from the same organisation) can be arranged, subject to availability, by emailing the event organiser
