How women can shape their director career networking evening


With the registration of women on ASX 200 boards sitting at 25.3% at the end of 2016, there is still work to be done to promote a greater gender balance in our boardrooms.

This joint event initiative between Brisbane Women’s Club and AICD aims to assist women interested in developing board careers. We have gathered an experiencd panel of female board members from the private, public and not-for-profit sectors to share their tips and provide practical advice on:

  • Understanding the current context surrounding board appointments;
  • Identifying requisite and desirable technical and leadership skills and experience; and
  • Career structuring in order to obtain board appointments.

Join us at this special event to hear how diverse group of senior women have shaped their board careers.

Panellists include:

  • Bronwyn Morris FAICD – Bronwyn is a professional Non-Executive Director whose portfolio spans the publicly listed, Government and not-for-profit sectors across a broad range of industries. She was the first female President of the Brisbane Club and is a member of Chief Executive Women.
  • Rachel Hunter – Rachel is the Chair of the Board of Children’s Health Queensland and Health Services. She was formerly the Chair of QCOMP and of Legal Aid Queensland. Rachel has played a pivotel role in leading reform in public service policy and institutions.
  • Carol Lewis – Carol has more than 20 years of experience as a search consultant, focusing on C-level and board assignments both locally and internationally for major listed organisations and large private corporations. Carol is also on the advisory panel for the 30% club.
