This is the fourth annual Women in Leadership event in Bendigo presented by La Trobe in partnership with the City of Greater Bendigo, BE Bendigo and this year in partnership with Artlands Victoria. This event is designed to stimulate a conversation around the topic of women in senior and leadership roles in community, business and government and explore types of leadership and different leadership journeys.

Facilitated by Professor Amalia Di Iorio, join Justine Hyde, Director of library services and experience at State Library Victoria, and a panel of community and arts industry leaders, to discuss gender equality and leadership. Justine is also a freelance writer and critic published in The Age, Meanjin, Melbourne Review, Newtown Review of Books, Women’s Agenda and many library journals. 

Panel Members:

  • Tansy Curtin - Curatorial Manager, Bendigo Art Gallery 
  • Penny Rowland – Director of Marketing, The Australian Ballet 
  • Anne Virgo OAM - CEO and Artistic Director, Australian Print Workshop Inc

All money from ticket sales goes to the Regional Women in Leadership Bursary. The purpose of the fund is to provide bursaries to female La Trobe students in regional Victoria who are aspiring to leadership positions but are experiencing some disadvantage during the course of their studies.

Last year’s event raised over $5000, which was awarded to five students studying at our Bendigo Campus.
