Conference Description (submitted by organizer)
Featuring acclaimed keynote speaker and author, Avril Henry.
Named as one of the 100 Women of Influence in Australia, and one of the 10 most influential women in the diversity space, Avril is passionate about gender; generational and cultural diversity; developing collaborative leaders; and positive workplaces.
Over 14 years, Avril’s consulting business has worked with organisations in the private and public sector; to change their culture and build their leadership capability, one leader, team and organisation at a time.
Avril will demonstrate how self-leadership is about choices, self-awareness, self-belief and backing yourself. She will teach you how to take care of yourself, before taking care of others, and share how self-care leads to self-preservation, and a greater ability to lead others successfully. It is about the Power of One.
Now more than ever is the time to #PressforProgress. There is no doubt that we are witnessing a significant global movement in women’s equality. It’s time for the IT and cybersecurity sectors to accelerate this global momentum, as a call to action.
We recognise that progress is being made but, despite being in a skills shortage, women still represent only 11% of the technology workforce.
