Women In Leadership

The Women In Leadership events are designed to stimulate a conversation around the topic of women in senior and leadership roles in business, government, and community, and explore types of leadership and different leadership journeys.

All money from ticket sales goes to the Regional Women in Leadership Bursary. The purpose of the fund is to provide bursaries to female La Trobe students in regional Victoria who are aspiring to leadership positions but are experiencing some disadvantage during the course of their studies. Last year’s event raised over $9,000 which was awarded to nine Bendigo students.
