Business empowerment, leadership and career advancement for emerging and established women leaders


For the last 9 years, the Women Leaders Institute has created a safe space for emerging and established leaders to be inspired, connect and grow.  
We are delighted to announce that the 8th Annual Public Sector Women in Leadership Summit returns to Canberra this November
This year we bring you a unique approach to invest in your leadership journey, unlock your true potential, and rediscover your resilience through multiple interactive sessions. Be inspired by some of the region’s most powerful thought leaders to overcome self-doubt, put your hand up for new opportunities, and unapologetically take a seat at the leadership table.  
Hear fresh perspectives from our diverse line-up of leaders, and proactively address the external and internal roadblocks that hinder your leadership growth by: 
  • Developing a comprehensive action plan to accelerate your career trajectory 
  • Fostering a culture of inclusivity and becoming a true ally to empower our intersectional women leaders 
  • Overcoming counterproductive perfectionism by nurturing your leadership skills through our Leadership Coaching Clinic  
In line with our vision of connecting leadership communities, tune in to select sessions from key speakers live-streamed from locations across Australia and New Zealand. Join the community and find out more at
