We are thrilled to announce our guest speaker: Robin Francis, president of the Brisbane Women's Club https://www.bwc.org.au/
Robin has had a long career in leadership and management development in Australian public and not-for-profit sectors and currently runs her own consultancy business in leadership development. She has made a significant contribution in the areas of cross-sectoral leadership development as Qld State Manager for Social Leadership Australia and previously as Head of Executive Development for the Queensland Public Service. She played a major role in introducing new approaches to leadership development and capability building across the Queensland Public Sector, including experiential development methods, scenario planning, international forums, coaching, and cross-departmental leadership networks that fostered innovation and collaboration in policy thinking and service delivery. Her national and international experience in Asia focussed on building leadership and management capability in health care sectors.
Some questions to kick start our thinking on this topic
- How has feminism improved life for rural women?
- Have we gone far enough?
- Is feminism a dirty word? Should it be?
- What can we do to improve opportunities for our daughters?
