Women, Leadership and Democracy in Australia – Registrations are open.

Date: 8 August 2011

Registrations are now open for ‘Women, Leadership and Democracy in Australia’, a two day conference to be held in Canberra on 1-2 December this year, hosted by the Museum of Australian Democracy and the University of Melbourne.

The conference will showcase the diversity of research on women’s leadership in Australian society since 1900. It will reveal new understandings of women’s civic and political leadership, from the neighbourhood to the international level, and uncover the experiences of women who performed significant leadership roles at the community level including consumer, political and environmental movements, as well as in Indigenous, migrant and rural communities. It will also explore the extent to which Australian women have provided leadership in multilateral organisations concerned with global democracy, such as the League of Nations, the International Labor Organization and the United Nations, as well as through regional and international advocacy networks. A draft program is attached.

Online registrations (paid by credit card) can be completed by following this link.

Further details about the conference including accommodation options can be found on the conference website.
