Women and Leadership Book Launch with Julia Gillard
In today’s world, women make up less than 10% of national leaders. Behind this headline number lies a pattern of unequal access to the corridors of power. Less than one in five parliamentarians is a woman and at the current rate of progress, it will take 50 years for women to reach equal numbers in parliament and 100 years for ministerial positions.
Join former Prime Minister of Australia Julia Gillard for lunch on the release of her book, which she has co-written with Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala – Women and Leadership.
As a result of their broad experience on the world stage in politics, economics, and global not-for-profits, they both have some strong ideas about the impact of gender on the treatment of leaders.
Women and Leadership | Real Lives, Real Lessons takes a consistent and comprehensive approach to teasing out what is different for women who lead.
With travel restrictions Julia will be streaming onto the big screens at the Hyatt Regency Perth, thanks to a wonderful audio visual set by PAV Complete Event Solutions. Business News journalist Matt Mckenzie will be on stage hosting a live moderated conversation with Julia as she talks about her new book and her own leadership journey.
Don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of the audience and have the chance to ask Julia a question. Join like-minded guests for a gourmet lunch box style lunch, to network, to reconnect, to share your own stories and perhaps win some fabulous door prizes. Please note this is an alcohol free event.
If you are unable to be there in person there is a paid online registration option available.
With thanks to Dymocks Garden City, a SIGNED COPY by Julia Gillard of Women and Leadership is offered at the online event discount price of $28.99 (RRP$34.99). Delivery for an additional $10 for Perth metro and regional WA. Or pick up in store or at the event on the day.
