ACLW hosted 3 public Leadership Conversations at the City Beach Function Centre in Wollongong, NSW. Each Conversation involved a Panel of leaders from different sectors in the Illawarra in front of a live audience. Conversations with Diann Rodgers-Healey to explore leadership in action through the personal journeys of leaders, and their insights on leadership in their field were followed by a Q&A session from the audience.
The net income raised from the 3 Conversations which totalled $1000 was donated to Janelle Brown for the Koori Women's Group which she has founded in the Illawarra, NSW.
The 3 Conversation events are outlined below. For further information download the Leadership Conversations flyer.
