Getting to the causes of inequality to #InspireInclusion

“Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women's equality. Collectively we can all #InspireInclusion.” International Women’s Day 2024

Everyone is invited to join us for our International Women’s Day Breakfast as we explore the deeper causes of inequality and how we can address them.

With a focus on fostering equality, panel members will discuss women’s inclusion, successful initiatives and experiences as well as ways we can all drive positive change.

When we inspire others to understand and value women's inclusion we build a foundation of belonging, relevance, and empowerment.

Join fellow governance professionals, hear from influential guest speakers, engage in the conversation and feel empowered to #InspireInclusion.

What is in it for you?

  • Feel inspired and empowered by women who have excelled in their careers.
  • Learn about future opportunities for women in governance
  • Hear from our speakers about their professional accomplishments, lessons they learnt and their advice to women on their leadership journey and those supporting the journey.
