About the Event

Across most organisations in Defence, Emergency Services and Enforcement, women are still considerably under represented at senior levels of leadership. While there has been some progression in recent years, a diverse array of hurdles still exist and make it challenging for women to access and acquire senior level leadership positions.

The Women in Emergency Services, Enforcement and Defence Leadership Summit 2015 explores these complex and varied obstacles and the challenges that women continue to face in this unique environment. The event focuses on delivering practical strategies and solutions to both existing and emerging female leaders to optimise their leadership effectiveness .

Insightful case studies from women who have progressed through the ranks and met the challenges of leading in complex situations will provide delegates with a range of strategies and tools to enhance their leadership effectiveness. This targeted event will provide inspiration and practical strategies to overcome career challenges and create a balanced personal and professional life that provides both satisfaction and success.
