Women in Public Service Leadership

Join us for a dialogue promoting systemic change and individual growth

New structure, local keynote speaker and a powerful program await you in September as features of our refreshed ‘Women in Public Service Leadership Conference’. Prices remain firmly aligned with our status as a member owned organisation with a remit to deliver exceptional value for money.

The power of this conference has become the energy generated by bringing together so many likeminded people hearing from an incredible array of leaders, researchers and practitioners.

In 2024 we have established concurrent streams for the first time. This is in response to feedback from 2023 highlighting just how much life and career stage impact the type of information and insights delegates need. Those established in their career will hear topics discussed in a manner that reflects the nuances of mid to late career challenges and opportunities. For those in the earlier years of their career, the sessions between morning tea and lunch will address aspects of the leadership journey that align with your energy and ambition as you set a course for a successful career.

The head of the Western Australian public service, Sharyn O’Neill PSM FIPAA, will set the tone for a day of dialogue between panellists, presenters and the audience. Delegates who listen carefully and participate thoughtfully will leave richer and better placed to pursue their ambitions in the year ahead.

For over ten years this conference has provided fresh inspiration and timely insights for thousands of dynamic and motivated women who, seeking senior leadership or not, are committed to driving the changes necessary for a gender balanced leadership future. Male allies have been few but those who have attended are ahead of the game in ensuring their effectiveness and relevance as the working world evolves.

This conference is particularly suited to delegates from local, state and commonwealth public service and the community sector who are:

  • Existing leaders with aspiration to executive leadership,
  • New professionals seeking unparalleled insights into the leadership journey,
  • Intent on carving out and maintaining a rewarding career of their own making,
  • Allies wanting to increase their understanding and capacity to support change, and
  • Executive leaders wishing to mentor a group from their team or organisation.

Getting the most from the conference

Delegates who listen carefully and participate thoughtfully will leave richer and better placed to pursue their ambitions in the year ahead.

Developed by your peers as program advisers, this conference will richly reward those to those who attend with an open-mind, a strong sense of curiosity and who possess the ability to draw meaning for themselves from both similar and dissimilar life stories.

For those seeking explicit instruction in leadership skills we encourage you to register for our Public Service Training courses.
