Redefining the future of the APS

Current statistics indicate that women make up around 59% of the APS, with the majority of these women holding positions at a classification level of EL2 and below, with men holding the majority of senior level positions. Whilst it’s clear that women are making significant strides towards equality, there is still a vast distance to go before all barriers have been erased. 

The Public Sector Women in Leadership Summit will bring together some of Australia’s foremost Public Sector female leaders and male champions of change to help promote progress and provide practical strategies for advancement to the next generation of female leaders.
