Progress to improve gender equity, workforce participation and the economic security and personal safety of all women has significant benefits for Australia – but has been frustratingly slow.

Chief Executive Women is calling time on talk. It’s time for concerted action. With momentum behind us, now is the right time to work together and drive the change we need.

The CEW Leadership Summit will bring leaders together for an uncensored conversation about what we can do to break through the malaise and achieve gender equality for the benefit of all in Australia, and our economic future.

We want every attendee to leave the CEW Leadership Summit with actions they can implement within their own sphere of influence, to help Australia breakthrough.
