More Women in Operations – What’s in it for Men?

Watch and participate LIVE as some of industry’s top experts debate the benefits more women working in operations is having on men.

On November 23, 21017, NAWO Livestreamed this Industry Solutions event nationally.  You can now WATCH THE REPLY to hear some of industry’s top experts debate the benefits more women working in operations is having on men.


Research shows a clear and positive correlation between gender balance and profit, safety, governance and innovation in workplace leadership.  Let’s closely examine these and other benefits and debate what still needs to be done in organisations to strive for a 50/50 gender balance in leadership in our industry.

This will be a dynamic and compelling forum on the issues affecting men and women as we work towards a more gender balanced playing field.

MC and host for this important event is Julia Baird – journalist, broadcaster, author and host of ABCTV’s ‘The Drum‘:

“It’s hugely important that we see women in leadership of organisations at all levels. Forums like this play an important role in identifying the challenges for women building their careers in operations, but also looking at the benefits of female leadership for both men and women and I am delighted to be a part of it.”

Guest speakers and panellists include:

Troy Roderick Executive Ambassador, Catalyst Australia

Phillip Austin President of CHEP Asia Pacific

Michelle Redfern Founder, Advancing Women

Natalie Goldman CEO, FlexCareers

Tim Hart Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer, Ridley Corporation Ltd

This important ‘Industry Solutions’ event was held in Melbourne on Thursday 23rd November, 2017, from 1:00 – 3:45 pm. It was part of NAWO’s Regional Delivery Program which aims to reach the large pool of female talent across regional Australia and is funded by Australian Government’s Office for Women.  This funding is part of the Government’s Women’s Leadership and Development Strategy, which is focused on improving gender equality and providing support for women’s economic empowerment, safety and leadership.  It is anticipated this partnership will enable hundreds (if not thousands) of regional women to participate in operational leadership development opportunities, and regional organisations to further their gender diversity targets.
