Male chiefs for gender equity lunch

Exclusive alumni discount

The Committee for Economic Development of Australia (CEDA) together with Women and Leadership series sponsors, NAB, the University of South Australia and Trility are delighted to welcome the Hon Jay Weatherill MP, Premier of South Australia at this year's Male Chiefs for Gender Equity luncheon.

South Australia's Chiefs for Gender Equity are a group of state based male business leaders who in conjunction with the South Australian Equal Opportunity Commissioner, Anne Gale, recognise the case for gender equity.

The business case for gender equity in the workplace is strong, with enhancing organisational performance, attracting the best employees and reducing the cost of staff being just a few of the benefits.

The speakers will provide their insight on the issue of gender diversity and discuss their involvement in the Chiefs for Gender Equity Group. We are also pleased to welcome Andrew Stevens who is a member of the Male Champions of Change founded by Elizabeth Broderick, Australia's Sex Discrimination Minister.

The UniSA Business School became a major sponsor of the CEDA Women and Leadership Series in January 2014. The series helps to advance the debate on gender equality and workforce diversity issues by engaging business and government executives with high profile national and international speakers.
