The gender equality in the workplace discussion is nothing new. In March, it was revealed that the pay gap is alive and well, with full-time Australian women being paid, on average, 16 per cent less than full-time men. And as of March this year the ASX 200 had just nine women CEOs and 10 women chairing boards.

However, there are women who are shattering those glass ceilings, becoming champions for the women coming up the ranks. In this webinar we discuss what shattering that ceiling really means, and what success can look like for women in the modern workplace.
