WA State Conference: Leading Women

State Leader Conference 2015

Celebrating women and leadership over the past 100 years

As you know, June 2014 – June 2015 is a celebration year to mark the centenary of Girl Woman-leaderGuides Western Australia. The motto for the centenary year is “Prepared for the Future.”

As part of the celebrations Girl Guides WA is hosting a Leader Conference on 18 April 2015 for adults members of Girl Guides as well as other relevant community groups and the general public.  The theme of the conference is “Leading Women.” This theme is a celebration of the lives and careers of some of our trailblazing female leaders, as well as discussion of how we can encourage and support young girls and women to become leaders of the future.

The mission of Girl Guides Australia is to help girls and young women grow into confident, self-respecting, responsible community members. As Guide Leaders, as parents as volunteers and in our careers, we provide role models for the girls and young women we interact with.

The purpose of the conference is to examine questions such as:

  • What are our responsibilities as current leaders?
  • How do we encourage young women to become leaders of the future?
  • What are the challenges and opportunities that the future holds for women, and for the local, national and international communities that we live in?

We will hear from a range of diverse and interesting speakers on topics such as:

  • Dealing with stress and developing resilience
  • Cybersafety
  • Indigenous women and girls in Western Australia
  • Women in Defence – from ANZAC to the 21st Century

As well as a panel discussion, interactive presentations and displays, prizes, and an opportunity to meet with other amazing WA women.

Event registrations will open at the end of October. The conference fee will be:

  • Early bird price for GGWA members – $40 until end of February 2015
  • Non members $60.

These prices include lunch. Maximum of 80 tickets available.
