The Women in Leadership event in Shepparton offers a forum designed to stimulate a conversation around the topic of women in senior and leadership roles in business, government and community and explore types of leadership and different leadership journeys.

All monies from ticket sales goes to the Regional Women in Leadership Bursary.  The purpose of the fund is to provide bursaries to female La Trobe students in regional Victoria who are aspiring to leadership positions but are experiencing some disadvantage during the course of their studies.

The event will conclude with refreshments and an opportunity for networking.
