Picture… a ‘manager’. What do they look like? How do they behave? What is their leadership style? Is your imaginary manager also a leader?
It can be hard to be what you can’t see. Women currently hold 27.4% of key management positions in Australia. And that number falls with every step you take up the corporate ladder – just 15.4% of CEOs and 14.2% of company Chairs are women (WGEA). With so few women in leadership positions as role models, challenging our pre-conceptions of management and leadership style and embracing authenticity is important.
Join NAWO at Bunnings, the leading retailer of home improvement and outdoor living products in Australia and New Zealand, to discuss what’s needed in your tool belt to become an authentic leader. Hear from Bunnings’ Area Managers, Margaret Walford and Zoe Richards, who will discuss being a lifelong leader in all aspects of life, not just at work.
Don’t miss this opportunity to challenge your ideas about ‘ideal’ management personas in a session that’s less about ‘DIY’ and more about ‘Do It Your Way’!
Stay and join us for a site tour of Bunnings’ newest commercial store following the presentations. Get the opportunity to look behind the scenes and learn more about the operations of Australia’s hardware giant, including stock management, retailing and warehousing, alongside learning the sustainability measures they have put in place.
Enclosed footwear must be worn.
The session will commence with a networking activity and afternoon tea.
