This is the third annual Women in Leadership event presented by La Trobe in partnership with City of Wodonga, YWCA and Business Women Albury Wodonga. The events are 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 money 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. Last year’s event raised over $4000, which was awarded to four Albury-Wodonga students.
Kate became Australia’s Sex Discrimination Commissioner in 2016. Kate is the convener of the National Male Champions of Change group, and Co-Chair of Play by the Rules, a joint project between human rights agencies and sports commissions to make grass roots sports safe, fair and inclusive.
