CPA Australia's Women in Leadership Lunch

When: March 13 2020

Where: Canberra, Australia


This year’s CPA Australia Women in Leadership lunch works hand in hand with the International Women’s Day theme #EachforEqual, encouraging women and men to actively fight against stereotypes and bias by being unapologetically you.

By being your best and authentic self in the work place you can improve situations, broaden perceptions and develop a work environment that provides equal opportunity for all.

CPA Australia welcomes the women of Canberra to join us for its annual Women in Leadership Lunch on 13 March 2020. Join them for lunch at Hotel Realm to hear from Canberra’s best and brightest on why it is important to be unapologetically you.
