Brochure: http://www.liquidlearning.com.au/documents/WIM0915/WIM0915_W.pdf The media and communications industry holds considerable power and influence in shaping the way society thinks, feels and makes decisions. The strategic decisions made by senior Managers and Executives in journalism, government relations, public relations, advertising, marketing and corporate communications carry enormous weight and affect the actions of a number of organisations and people. While there has been improvement in female representation in senior roles in recent years, there is still some way to go before gender diversity is achieved across the board. Without diversity at a senior level the messages, ideals and norms which flow from decision-makers will not be reflective of the diverse Australian population. The 3rd Women in Media and Communications Leadership Summit 2015 will continue its tradition of tackling the unique challenges that women in media and communications face and provide proven and practical strategies to overcome them for enhanced career and leadership success. Inspirational women from a variety of media and communications organisations and sectors will share their stories and provide critical advice for current and emerging female leaders for increased professional proficiency and potential.
