A celebration of women in public sector leadership.  

ABOUT THIS EVENT 

The Women’s Executive Luncheon celebrates the role women have played in leading the NSW public sector and explores how we can ensure women continue to strive for executive level careers. 

The 10th annual Luncheon is an opportunity to hear directly from three senior women who have significant responsibility in interpreting, enforcing and advising on important NSW legislation and statutes. The speakers will share their personal and professional insights for other women aspiring to leadership roles and discuss the challenges in closing the gender gap in NSW public sector leadership.

The Women’s Executive Luncheon is part of IPAA’s strategy to increase public sector diversity and support women in public sector leadership roles.

WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

This event is exclusively for senior women within the NSW public sector and represents a valuable opportunity to build your professional network in a supportive environment.

At least 25% of this event is allocated to questions from the floor, meaning that you will also have the opportunity to play an active part in this discussion.

All IPAA events include purposeful networking which allows you to:
  • Build relationships with the speaker/s and fellow guests
  • Develop your capabilities 
  • Establish connections across the NSW public sector.
     
SPONSOR ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
This event is made possible through the support of our sponsor, EY.
