The Australian Media and Communications sector via journalism, public relations, advertising and

corporate / government communications holds considerable power and influence in shaping our

society, culture, views and decisions. As such it is imperative there is diversity at the senior level of

all media and communications organisations and departments to ensure the messages that are

communicated are representative and reflective of our diverse population. While there has been

some improvement in recent times, there is still some way to go before gender diversity is seen

across the board in media and communications due to a diverse array of challenges still existing.

The Women in Media and Communications Leadership Summit 2014 will explore 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 of success

and provide critical advice for current and emerging female leaders for increased professional

proficiency and potential.
