2015 She Leads Conference

She Leads Conference

The 2015 She Leads Conference was held on 18-19 May 2015 at Hotel Realm.

Our MC Tracey Spicer, and a lineup of renowned Australian women leaders led a day of education and skills development, an abundance of networking opportunities, and a mix of stimulating talks and hands-on workshops.

Attending the She Leads Conference gave delegates the practical skills to accelerate their leadership journeys, whether they work in the corporate, government or not-for-profit sector. The event is designed to be an intergenerational event and we welcomed and encouraged women of all ages and at all stages of their leadership journey to attend.

She Leads Masterclasses

This year the Conference also included exciting She Leads Masterclasses, which were held in the evening of 18 May at Hotel Realm.

The Masterclasses were run concurrently.

She Leads Conference Scholarships

YWCA Canberra acknowledges that some women are not always in a position to fund their participation in programs such as these.

This year we have partnered with Westpac, the Zonta Canberra Chapter, and our past Treasurer, Betty Ferguson, to offer four conference scholarships to women that would otherwise not be able to fund their participation.

One of these scholarships will be allocated to a full-time student.

We encourage applicants to explore all possible options to fund their participation (such as asking your employer or applying for a small grant) before applying for this scholarship.

We welcome applications from members and non-members.

Applications have closed.
