GLOBE in partnership with Crown Pride Network present the first Focus On for 2021: Queer Women In Leadership.

Advancing women in leadership is central to creating more profitable and productive economies, thriving businesses and a healthier and more peaceful planet.

There is a growing understanding and expectation that leadership in all facets needs to reflect our communities. Organisations miss out if 50% of the talent pool – women in all their diversity — is not around decision-making tables.

We know more diverse and inclusive groups have higher performance. Yet in a 2018 study by PwC and Pride In Diversity 29% of respondents believe being same-sex attracted inhibits their ability to progress their career, whilst 51% believe that their gender is an inhibitor. When asked which was more important, 79% said that both gender and sexual equality equally impact.

How do we help more women step into leadership roles?

In GLOBE’s first LGBTIQ+ women’s face to face event for 2021, our panel of speakers are women who inspire, lead and are committed to making a difference every day.

  • Moana Hope, Powerhouse of Women’s Football and Survivor All Star
  • Dr Jenny Gray (ally), CEO of Zoos Victoria and Queer Ally
  • Virginia Lovett, Executive Director and Co-CEO of the Melbourne Theatre Company

They’ll share their experiences of leadership as women, tackling imposter syndrome, why being represented at the table matters and what you can do to overcome the gender-related glass ceiling.

This event is put on by women for women and the larger LGBTIQ+ community. Regardless of how you identify, ALL are welcome.
