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

All proceeds from ticket sales go 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.
