Women’s Global Leadership Summit Australia

Learn together. Lead together.

an AICPA and CIMA event in association with Informa Connect


We're looking forward to welcoming our attendees, sponsors and speakers at the AICPA & CIMA Women's Global Leadership Summit Australia in August.

Our number one priority is the safety of our delegates and colleagues, and there are always measures in place at our venues to safeguard your health and safety. There are extra measures in place for 2020 in light of developments with COVID-19.


What does it take to support diversity and inclusion in the workplace? We continue to examine and reassess the answers to that question and we know that there’s no one-size-fits-all approach for organizations. 

But we can implement best practices as a matter of strategy. We can focus on encouraging and supporting women’s leadership at the institutional level. We can develop our skill sets so that we are responsive, adaptive and gutsy in tackling the biggest challenges. And we can network with those like us, who are looking for answers and want to drive themselves, and their businesses, forward. 

The AICPA & CIMA Women’s Global Leadership Summit in Johannesburg brings those ideas to the forefront with leading speakers, thought-provoking discussions and great opportunities to network.

Real-world insights

High-performing professionals in business, finance and leadership development will examine barriers that stall women’s advancement and share concrete strategies for moving women — and their companies — forward.

Adapt your skill set
