Women in Roads, Rail and Transport Infrastructure Leadership Summit 2017

15-05-2017 / / 4 Days

Novotel Sydney on Darling Harbour, 100 Murray Street, Pyrmont, NSW 2009.

The roads, rail and transport Infrastructure sector is a demanding environment that needs highly skilled, diverse and innovative leaders. Despite evidence proving that diverse leadership teams yield better results, this continues to be a male-dominated environment, particularly at the senior executive level. However, with more women entering the industry, it is crucial they acquire the leadership skills and support to advance in their leadership careers.

Existing and emerging leaders must sharpen their skill set, develop their authentic leadership brand and create strong support networks. Whether it is moving from a technical to a strategic role, navigating change or improving your management skills, committing to your professional development is vital when seizing opportunities to fulfil your potential. Not only will this event equip attendees with these essential leadership skills, it will empower them to address diversity issues in their organisation and affect positive solutions to closing the gender gap.

The Women in Rail, Roads and Transport Infrastructure Leadership Summit 2017 brings together a variety of senior leaders to share their inspirational leadership journeys, practical advice and insights. A variety of inspirational case studies, practical expert commentaries and two interactive panels will give attendees the confidence and skill set to advance their performance and career potential. There will be opportunities to network and learn from executives in an interactive forum that is designed to equip participants with strategies and inspiration to successfully blossom into the leader of tomorrow.
