Since 2012, the Women Leaders Institute has developed a safe and supportive space for emerging and established leaders to be inspired, grow and connect across Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

Through our range of events and gatherings, we focus on showcasing the inspiring success stories and achievements of those before and around us. Those who have had the courage to take a path no one has before, those who have been able to throw down the rope to better support diverse talent in the pipeline, and those progressing on their unique journey of personal and professional development to be more authentic and effective leaders.  

Recognising that leadership is not defined by a gender, background, or position, the Women Leaders Institute strives to provide platforms and opportunities for emerging and established leaders to fill their executive toolkits and gain the inspiration to take the next step in their career to become influential, visionary and forward-thinking leaders for  communities and businesses. 

Connect with empowering and inspiring women, share stories of success, grow your network and keep informed of our upcoming events on our social channels.
