The Hon. Julia Gillard AC was the first woman to serve as Australia’s Prime Minister or Deputy Prime Minister.
As Prime Minister, The Hon. Julia Gillard was central to the successful management of Australia’s economy, the 12th biggest in the world. During the Global Financial Crisis she positioned Australia to seize the benefits of Asia’s rise.
Since leaving politics, the former Prime Minister has been actively campaigning for women and gender equality across all industries. Women are still underrepresented in leadership roles with significant barriers halting the rate of progress. According to the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership, an institution in which our first female prime minister is now the inaugural chair, just 23% of national parliamentarians are female globally, while women make up only 26% of news media leaders, 27% of judges, 25% of senior managers, 15% of corporate board members and 9% of senior IT leaders.
“Progress on gender equality is not just slow – in some places it’s reversing. This lack of movement, combined with the current public debate about how women are treated in workplaces and wider society, means there has never been a better time to tackle these issues head-on.”
At the 7th Public Sector Women in Leadership Conference, the Hon Julia Gillard AC will highlight what Australia needs in order to create a world in which women are not just seen as a barrier but as a leader in their field.
