The high-pressure and ever changing nature of work within the Emergency Services, Enforcement and Defence sectors require a unique blend of responsive and proactive leadership skills, coupled with an awareness of how to deal with challenging situations whilst ensuring the safety and well-being of your team. Across most organisations within this sector, women are still considerably underrepresented at senior levels of leadership. While there has been some progression in recent years, a diverse array of hurdles still exist and make it challenging for women to access and maintain senior level leadership positions.
The 5th Annual Women in Emergency Services, Enforcement and Defence Leadership Summit 2017 explores these complex and varied obstacles and the challenges that women continue to face in this unique environment. The event will bring together women from across all areas of these sectors to discuss the demands of their role and how to thrive in this high-pressured environment whilst also focusing on delivering practical strategies and solutions to both existing and emerging female leaders to optimise their leadership effectiveness.
