Institute of Managers and Leaders is delighted to announce the International Women’s Day Great Debate is back in 2018!

After this year’s unforgettable event, join us on Thursday 8 March 2018, to celebrate the achievements of women nationally and internationally.

This old school, long-lunch style debate sees six hand-picked, interesting and opinionated Australian leaders debating ‘The future is female’ in two teams (the negative and the affirmative), our equally interesting and witty MC, Jane Caro, who will be on hand to keep things clean, on-topic and, of course, to stop too much fur flying.

In short, it’s a whole load of debating fun over a longish lunch to celebrate an internationally significant, diversity-focused day.
