Women's Professional Development Forum

About the forum

Our Women’s Professional Development Forum addresses the issues, opportunities and challenges faced by women working in Local Government. Women working at all levels are encouraged to attend for leadership development and personal growth.

The aim of our Women's forum is to highlight the issues facing women working in the sector, to develop leadership skills, enhance personal growth, and provide insights into how the sector can collectively go forward in addressing women’s issues in the workplace.
In 2019 we celebrated our 10th Women’s Professional Development Forum with a new venue and a new format. The day was a huge success as our delegates participated in the following sessions;

•    Three short keynote presentations
•    A Networking Workshop
•    The chance to win a free one hour mentoring session with a female CEO
•    You CAN Ask That facilitated panel discussion where you can ask industry leaders everything you have always wanted to know
•    Brief mindfulness sessions at the start and end of the program
•    Increased number of Rural Women’s Scholarships for women working in small rural Councils. We also made seven scholarships available to women working in rural city councils to support them in attending the Women's Professional Development Forum.
