Women in industry: building inclusive teams for success


Friday, 8 March 2019

On International Women’s Day, join General Assembly Melbourne for a business breakfast featuring leaders from Microsoft, Telstra, Square and LULUMPR® discussing how together we can drive a more balanced working world and accelerate gender parity.

Hear from experts on difficult topics affecting not only women in the workforce but organisations at all levels.

Our panel will discuss unconscious biases uncovered during their journeys, the importance of taking an in-depth look into your company’s culture and actionable takeaways you can implement into your talent pipeline strategies for meaningful impact.

This event is of course open to all genders — anyone who supports the careers of women and those identifying as women in business and tech are welcome to attend.
