Women in Local Government Conference

The Women in Local Government Conference was developed to empower women in the local government context. The conference aims to consider the application of leadership to engage women in the sector, developing techniques for the 'every-day' leader and creating a workplace culture that values the contribution of women in all aspects and levels of the organisation.

By connecting women across the local government sector, we aim to provide those women with access to valuable insights, effective real-world strategies from skilled facilitators, and plenty of opportunities to network, collaborate and share ideas.
