The local government sector has entered into a period of significant transformation and change which is creating both challenges and opportunities for leaders in Local Councils. Leaders in this environment often find themselves pulled in different directions by diverse internal and external stakeholders. Many cite that a well-rounded set of influencing skills, political acumen and a diplomatic character is required to thrive.

Women in Local Government leadership roles are often confronted with additional challenges associated with carving out a successful leadership career in a male-dominated space. While organisations are making significant headway in improving female representation in leadership roles, there is more work to be done. Women have a significant opportunity to take charge of their career through embarking on a leadership development journey.

The National Women in Local Government Leadership Summit brings together some of the country’s finest front-runners in the sector to share valuable expertise gained over significant careers. The event will give delegates the opportunity to hear from leaders and experts, to discuss the issues that face them in the unique context of their sector and develop plans and goals for the future. This event is designed to give delegates the inspiration and skills they need to effectively lead in a dynamic and constantly changing environment. It will highlight how leaders in this environment can successfully achieve both their professional and personal aspirations. The exceptional array of speakers who will share the challenges they have experienced and overcome throughout their career, as well as their stories of achievement and success.
