Media Release - 3 September 2019
Back for its fourth year, the Women in Leadership Summit 2019 returns to Sydney’s Seymour Centre from the 24-27 September 2019. This educationally focused four-day event will see 35 inspiring leaders guide over 500 Australian women in business to ‘Take Action’ in their leadership journey and cultivate meaningful change for future generations.
Dana Lightbody, Executive Director and Chair of The Leadership Institute, the minds behind the signature Women in Leadership Summit (WILS) says, “This year is set to be our best yet. Our theme ‘Take Action’ is focused on the need for women to lead the way by creating their own opportunities and helping others to have the confidence to do so, by sharing experiences and equipping them with the tools they need.”
 #WILSummit19 will feature:
  • Inspiring keynotes by Carrie Bickmore OAM, Alannah Hill, Ann Sherry AO
  • Career focused case-studies with Kendra Banks, Erica Berchtold, Suzanne Steele and Susan Martin
  • Cutting panel discussions with Alison Rice, Chelsea Bonner and Susan Anderson
  • Interactive workshops curated by Amanda MacLean, Nell Wilson and Noa Sheer
Alannah Hill, Iconic Australian designer, author and stylist, who is speaking on perseverance, dedication and success, says, “Success only comes once you understand your mind, our thoughts are that powerful. So, stop procrastinating and go and create the life you deserve. There will be fear, there will be failure. But if you’re not committed it will not work.”

“Each year, more and more companies say they are now committed to gender equality, however, we are still not seeing this translate into action. Our mission for the Women in Leadership Summit is to inspire more women to become authentic leaders, equip them with skills and strategies to add maximum value to their organisations and ‘Take Action’ to negotiate their worth and secure senior management and board positions in 2020,” concludes Dana.
