LTPF final smallSymposium calls for support from activists in Gender Diversity in Leadership

“We need to hear from you and we need your support. Please participate!”

This call for support comes from the organisers of a new Symposium designed to provide innovative ways to deal with the urgent – but seemingly intractable problem – of gender balance in leadership.

Level the Playing Field is a ground breaking Symposium organised by The 100% Project in partnership with Leadership Victoria and sponsored by Australia Post and Qantas, will be facilitated by world-renowned thought leader Marty Linsky.

Ms Frances Feenstra, Chair of The 100% Project, said, “The Symposium needs more participants who are taking action in this area. We need to hear their stories and learn from the challenges they’ve faced. Many organisations have moved on from rhetoric and are taking action. Unfortunately the majority are still stuck in ‘talk mode.’

“We’re hearing the talk but not benefiting from seeing the action.

“We need to learn from more Australian case studies where action is underway. Good or bad – we can learn from it,” Frances said.
