She Leads Partners

The She Leads Program of events combines education and skills development, an abundance of networking opportunities, and a mix of stimulating talks and hands-on workshops with some of Australia’s most renowned women leaders. The Program includes the annual She Leads Conference, the annual She Leads College Conference, quarterly She Leads In-Conversation events, and monthly She Leads Workshops.

She Leads attendees are an extraordinary breed: passionate, outward looking, curious, intelligent, and hungry to learn more. Our 2017 events will attract a highly engaged audience from Canberra and beyond, who want to lead change locally, nationally and internationally. We anticipate that more than 600 women will engage with at least one aspect of the Program.

By becoming a She Leads partner, you are demonstrating your support for advancing gender equality in Australia. You will join like-minded organisations and businesses from a range of sectors and industries in empowering women to achieve their full potential.

To find out how your organisation can get involved as a She Leads partner, please contact Joanna Le, Director of Communication, Advocacy and Fundraising at Joanna.Le@ywca-canberra.org.au
