Back in 2006, Australia stood 15th in the World Economic Forum’s Gender Gap Report, which ranks countries based on gender equality in economic participation, political empowerment and educational attainment. By 2021 we slipped all the way down to 50th. Are we going backwards, or is the rest of the world progressing at a much faster rate? 

In this panel discussion and Q&A we’ve assembled key figures known for their advocacy for gender equity and for accelerating and embedding change. We’ll speak to them about corporate life and overcoming barriers to women achieving senior roles, on gender bias in the legal and political domains, and the cultural reasons behind low glass ceilings for women from minority groups. What will it take for us to reach parity in the next thirty years?
