Events: panels, roundtables and more

We run events in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Canberra and Adelaide to engage with our industry partners and to continue to collaborate to find a solution. Our events include panels, debates, networking, boardroom lunches, roundtables and workshops and are run by our teams of volunteers. We rely on corporate and government partners to help us continue these events, and in-kind sponsorship of venues, promotion and people is an enormous enabler.

The 100% Podcast!

In a “normal” year, we would hold face-to-face gatherings with thought provoking speakers presenting The 100% Project’s latest research.

In the extraordinary world of COVID-19, we want to continue the conversation virtually. The benefit of using technology is that we can reach a greater audience, and include leaders based overseas to hear about their challenges and solutions.  We believe you will be interested in hearing these different, or possibly remarkably similar, perspectives.
 
For our first podcast series, we thought it appropriate that we investigate the impact that COVID-19 has or hasn’t had on the quest for gender equality in the workforce. The question we asked our guests was “Will leaders pay attention to gender equality – while their business is recovering from COVID-19?”

Gender Balance in Leadership;
does leadership style matter?

The 100% Project presented this new research in Sydney (previously launched in Melbourne in June).  The styles of leadership under review were transactional leadership, transformational leadership and adaptive leadership.  Jamie Sims, Director, People Measures, presented an overview of where Australia currently sits in the gender equality world rankings; which told an alarming story!  

A summary and extracts from the research showed a clear link between an organisation’s leadership styles and the likelihood of greater gender equality in the leadership team.

Jamie was then joined in a panel discussion by Georgie Dent, author, presenter and contributing editor of Women’s Agenda, and Kevin Moore, Chairman of the recently re-launched Toys R Us, Chairman of CROSSMARK and Now Comms Asia, for an insightful and robust discussion on the reason Australia is falling behind other countries in our quest for gender equality – and what we should be doing about this!  

The audience was terrific with strong engagement and challenging questions, which resulted in energetic panel-audience conversations.
