Women in Local Government Conference


The Women in Local Government Conference was developed to empower women in the local government context. The conference aims to consider the application of leadership to engage women in the sector, developing techniques for the 'every-day' leader and creating a workplace culture that values the contribution of women in all aspects and levels of the organisation.

It provides valuable insights and real-world examples with skilled facilitators who provide effective strategies to implement in the workplace, and plenty of opportunities to network, collaborate and share ideas with other attendees. 

The  2019 LGMA Queensland Women in Local Government Conference ‘A Raft in the Currents’  will be held on 7-8 November, in Brisbane.
