International Women’s Day Great Debate- Melbourne



date & time

08/03/2019 - 12:00 pm to 2:30 pm

2019 Great Debate topic:



IML’s annual International Women’s Day (IWD) Great Debate seeks to change Australian society for the better by creating, supporting and championing women in leadership.

With company policies like affirmative action, maternity leave and blind recruitment helping to combat the pay gap and the glass ceiling, Australia is making progress towards equal representation of genders in business. While there is still considerable progress to be made, it seems that the importance of feminism is now more widely embraced than ever.

This year, the Institute challenges the notion, “do women need the cooperation of men to succeed in 2019?” 


Join us on March 8th for a day of intellectual and heartfelt discussion on today’s climate for change and gender equality.
