Women's Professional Development Forum

About the forum

This year we celebrate our 10th Women’s Professional Development Forum which addresses challenges facing women working in the sector. It also supports career development and provides personal growth strategies and shared approaches to addressing these issues.

In response to feedback, this year’s Forum is at a new venue and we have a new format including an increased focus on networking.

The Forum will be held on Thursday 25 July from
9.15a.m-5pm at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Brunton Avenue, Richmond. It will be followed by the Women’s Network Dinner which will be held at the same venue from 6.30pm.

New this year
