From the playing field to the workplace – improving performance through inclusion and diversity

The importance of championing and campaigning for gender equality and inclusion in the workplace continues to be a significant issue in Australian businesses. The business of sport is one that holds particular importance thanks to its ability to reach far and wide within society.
We are excited to invite you to register for this year’s Women in Business and Sport Leaders Luncheon, to be held on Thursday 17th August in Sydney, in association with the Australian Rugby Union.
The fourth iteration of this annual event, which takes place as part of the Bledisloe Cup Festival, is sure to be inspirational and thought provoking as we honour and hear from some of the most outstanding Trans-Tasman female business and sporting leaders. They will talk about their own experiences in business and sport, as well as giving their opinion on how we can all do more to achieve gender equality and inclusion in all realms.
We are delighted to announce Lucy Turnbull AO as the guest of honour as well as Ann Sherry AO as our Patron. A panel of guest speakers with some exceptional rugby credentials will be announced closer to the time.
