Women in Politics: the barriers to achieving gender balance and how women and men are working together to combat this

7th September 2021 12.30pm - 1.30pm AEST

We will hear from Amanda Webb, Board Director, Women for Election Australia on the barriers women face to getting elected - how and why they prepare women to stand for public office; the personal experiences of Zali Steggall OAM MP – and how she got elected into an “unwinnable seat”; and Alex Greenwich MP, an Independent Member for Sydney, who champions equality and human rights. 


Despite the passing of the sexual discrimination act over 35 years ago and women’s rising workforce participation rates (61% compared to men's at 71%[1]), only 18% of CEO’s are women and only 32% of Directors in ASX 200. For the first time in Australia’s history, there was equal representation between men and women parliamentarians in the Senate as of 1 January 2020[2]. However, women still comprise only three in ten federal parliamentarians in the House of Representatives. One in five (20.0%) Federal Government Ministers and 26.1% of Federal Government Cabinet Ministers were women, as of January 1, 2019[3][4].
