Our 2017 Women’s Professional Development Forum was held on Thursday 22 June at Melbourne Park Function Centre in Batman Avenue from 9am-4.45pm. The theme for this year’s forum was Connect, Advance, Thrive.

The forum was facilitated by leading female professionals, thought leaders and rights advocates. Women working in all roles in Local Government were encouraged to attend 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.

Our two keynote speakers this year were critically acclaimed author and cultural commentator Robyn Davidson, and expert mentor and thought leader Dr. Louise Mahler.

To complement our speakers, we had three short-talk presenters and four interactive workshops that delegates could engage in discussion.

 Keynote speaker: Dr. Louise Mahler                 Keynote speaker: Robyn Davidson
