Join Our Lecture on "Life Under Glass – Exploring, Understanding, and Breaking the Glass Ceiling to Increase Women’s Leadership"

Are you passionate about breaking the glass ceiling and increasing women's leadership? Don't miss this unique opportunity to gain insights from esteemed experts: Associate Professor Anne Hewitt, Dr Pam Papadelos, and Associate Professor Duygu Yengin. Join us for an enlightening online lecture on "Life Under Glass – Exploring, Understanding, and Breaking the Glass Ceiling to Increase Women’s Leadership" on Friday, 7 June 2024, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (Jakarta time) via Zoom.

Despite expectations that increased access to education and employment for women would gradually erode the glass ceiling, it remains firmly in place. This lecture will explore the implications of the glass ceiling not only for women but also for businesses, the economy, and society as a whole. The session will examine the ‘invisible’ obstacles that contribute to the glass ceiling effect, preventing women from undertaking leadership roles in significant numbers. These obstacles include penalties for taking time off work, conscious and unconscious biases within workplaces, and organisational culture and structure. The presentation will also explore potential solutions that can be designed and implemented by various stakeholders, including businesses, government bodies, lawmakers, and society, with a sensitivity to intersectional identities such as race, class, and sexuality.

Calling all graduates and scholars of Australian tertiary institutions from Indonesia interested in understanding the complexities of the glass ceiling and gaining insights into enhancing women’s leadership. RSVP by Wednesday, 5 June, to secure your place in this online lecture. Register now at this link. As a token of appreciation for your participation, attendees will receive an e-certificate.
