ISBN: 0 85801 276 6

Extract from the foreword:

“CEDA is Australia’s leading independent thought leadership organisation providing policy perspectives on the critical economic and social issues facing Australia. Women in leadership is an issue with implications for policy that influences everything from Board membership to gender equality.

The following document provides an overview of the key issues raised during CEDA’s Victorian Women in Leadership series during 2010/2011.

Reports such as this and other subsequent publications that will emerge from CEDA’s ongoing Women in Leadership series across Australia aim to drive the debate around gender equity, and in turn substantiate the business case for improvements for women in leadership roles.
