Women are still significantly underrepresented in senior level leadership across Australian Higher Education Institutions. While there has been some progression in recent years, a diverse array of obstacles still continue to make it difficult for women to access and acquire these leadership positions. The National Higher Education Women’s Leadership Summit 2014 addresses these challenges and provides practical strategies and solutions to both existing and emerging female leaders to enhance their leadership proficiencies and potential and meet their career goals.

Inspiring stories from female Higher Education leaders and expert leadership advice will provide delegates with a range of tactics and techniques to overcome common career obstacles, develop an effective leadership plan and create a personal and professional life that provides both success and satisfaction.
