She Leads In-Conversation Series

In order to address gender inequality, we think it’s important to listen to and amplify women’s voices. That’s why we have created the She Leads In-Conversation Series, which is the latest addition to the She Leads program of events.

These quarterly, evening events will provide Canberrans with the opportunity to hear from women leaders from different backgrounds and industries, in a conversational format, followed by a live Q&A session, and networking with drinks and canapes.

If you’ve been to any of our She Leads events in the past, you’ll know that we put on a great show. If you haven’t been to a She Leads event, the In-Conversation Series is the perfect way to start your She Leads journey.

In-Conversation’s are held at University of Canberra’s Ann Harding Centre, from 6:15-8:15pm, and cost $40 for YWCA Canberra members and University of Canberra students and $55 for non-members.
