Our She Leads In-Conversation events 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, book signing, and networking.

In May, join us for an evening with Dr Anne Summers AO, in conversation with Dr Skye Saunders.

Dr Summers is a best-selling author, journalist and thought-leader with a long career in politics, the media, business and the non-government sector in Australia, Europe and the United States.  She has been an outspoken champion of equality for women since the 1970s.

In this conversation, hear from Dr Summers about her experiences as a feminist advocate and woman in leadership negotiating significant cultural changes in Australia and overseas.
