Asia-Pacific Women in Leadership (APWiL) Workshop 2017

The University of Sydney is hosting the 2017 Asia-Pacific Women in Leadership (APWiL) workshop, which takes place on November 1-3 at the University’s main Camperdown campus in Sydney.

This year’s theme, 'Accelerating change in gender diversity and inclusion', will explore how university leadership can drive culture change through innovation, and deliver practical solutions, based on best practice. Participants will hear from within and outside of academia, and will share their own experiences, in this discursive, solutions-based workshop.

The workshop will feature a range of sessions that will aim to:

- Share experiences and case studies, from within and outside higher education, which deliver gender diversity and inclusion.

Identify examples of innovation and best practice in changing organisational systems and culture to advance gender diversity and inclusion.

- Provide a forum in which participants can discuss existing challenges and generate potential solutions.

- Enable the participants to network and deepen relationships with their international colleagues.

- Discuss how the APRU can accelerate change in gender diversity and inclusion, and identify actions for updating the APRU Gender Gap Report.

Speakers will include:

- Professor Marian Baird AO, Chair, Discipline of Work and Organisational Studies, University of Sydney

- Elizabeth Broderick AO, Australia’s Former Sex Discrimination Commissioner

- Annika Freyer, Chief Executive Officer, Male Champions of Change

- Professor Jane Latimer, School of Public Health, University of Sydney

Participants will leave feeling more equipped to lead change in gender diversity. The workshop will also consider how to maximise the value and impact of the APRU Gender Gap Report, which will be updated in 2018.

We hope you will be able to join us.
