Leading for change – What do great women leaders do

Powerhouse Theatre

There are women who hold and exercise power in pretty much every field — in science, sports, arts, politics, business, the community. Some — but not all of them — also seek to use their power and influence to make change on behalf of women and girls. In this session, outstanding women leaders talk about their work and consider some of the conversations that have taken place over the WOW weekend to help us work out what we need from our women leaders today. 

Participants will include Natasha Stott Despoja founding chair of Our Watch Australia, former politician and former Australian UN Ambassador, Dr Sandra Phillips Associate Professor, at Jumbunna Institute for Indigenous Education and Research, UTS, Jasvinder Sanghera founder of UK charity Karma Nirvana, Sri Lankan Gender Equality specialist Jayanthi Kuru-Utumpala.
