Global Women’s Peace Network ASSEMBLY: A Forum for Transformative Leadership 2023 Theme: Leadership Resilience

1 July, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm AEST

GWPN 2023: a forum for transformative leadership event details

Proud to be invited to present at the Global Women’s Peace Network (GWPN) and speak on Leadership Resilience. The forum will be held 1 July 2023 at Mt Waverley Community Centre. The title of my presentation will be “Leadership resilience and holding up the ladder for others”.

It’s an area I’m passionate about, as the representation of women in leadership roles continues to lag behind men due to systemic biases which perpetuate an ‘imposter syndrome’. Women in leadership roles have had to overcome many of these structural barriers, thereby creating their own unique qualities.

AFMW President - Associate Professor Magdalena SimonisWith leadership comes accountability and the inherent expectation is that knowledge is passed over to others with kindness and a willingness to guide. I will share some of insights from my own leadership journey and how learnings can be transferred through mentorship. Join us on what will be an incredible day of sisterhood and learning.

As a project of WFWPI, the GWPN was established in 2012 by Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon and her late husband, the Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon.

GWPN brings together leaders, organisations and governments to solve pressing social issues and secure an environment for equitable human development. Through peace leadership based on the feminine aspect of human nature, GWPN seeks to ensure lasting peace and prosperity for generations to come.

‘Leading into the Future’ with ‘heart’ and using the soft power skills of reconciliation, peace building, team building, collaboration and forgiveness that naturally come to women ARE the most powerful leadership skills for the 21st Century. The Global Women’s Peace Network Assembly is held on the first Saturday of July in Melbourne.
