Women's Conference 2017

REGISTER

'Nevertheless… she persisted'.

That is the theme of this year's annual Women's Conference - to be held on September 9.

Our keynote speakers, Dr Susan Alberti AC and Yassmin Abdel-Magied, are both great examples of that theme.

Dr Susan Alberti AC is a pre-eminent philanthropost who has worked tirelessly to build the AFLW league. She is regarded as the woman who made women's AFL a reality.

Yassmin Abdel-Magied is a passionate engineer, social commentator and Young Australian of the Year who has devoted her talents to making Australia a better place. You might have seen her go head to head with Senator Jacqui Lambie about feminism and Islam on Q&A recently.
