Watch or listen: The role of women in driving inclusive economic growth

After enduring a difficult year dominated by the multi-dimensional impact of COVID-19, we are now beginning to witness the green shoots of economic recovery.


Securing this recovery will require the active and effective participation of all. While women comprise half the population, they do not yet play a commensurate role in the economy or positions of leadership. A full and robust recovery therefore calls for ensuring the active participation of women at all levels.

The experiences of successful women business leaders can offer lessons and inspiration on charting a path to inclusive economic growth. In celebration of Kartini Day, this webinar will explore the challenges, including institutional, that affect the potential for women and the businesses they lead.

This special In Conversation webinar was held on 21 April at 3.30 pm AEST, in partnership with the Victorian Government Trade & Investment.
