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 the 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.

2018 program

Our 2018 LGPro Women’s Professional Development Forum was held on Thursday 26 July at Melbourne Park Function Centre.

This year's theme was 'Embrace the best version of you.' 

It was followed by the Women’s Network Dinner which was held at the same venue.

The forum targets officers working at all levels in Local Government regardless of their location, level or professional background. As well as addressing issues, opportunities and challenges facing women, it also supports career development and provides personal growth strategies and shared approaches to addressing these issues.

This year’s program featured:   

We also made seven scholarships available to women working in rural city councils to support them in attending the Women's Professional Development Forum.
