Grow & leverage your leadership skills to make an in impact

Women make up 80% of the community sector workforce, yet they are still underrepresented at a management and executive leadership level. While the sector is leading by comparison in terms of female representation at a leadership level, there is still work to do.

More than ever, we have seen the strength and impact that female leaders of purpose driven organisations have as they led their people, pivoted their organisation and supported their communities throughout the COVID pandemic.

Now is the time for women like you, who are passionate about the communities you work in, to invest in yourself and gain the leadership skills needed to advance your career. Whether you are an aspiring, emerging or current leader, the Women in Not-for-Profit & Community Services Leadership Summit 2021 will offer fresh insights and perspectives from senior leaders to inspire you on your leadership journey.
