Collaborative Workshop

During the Collaborative Workshop we will discuss the challenge statement with peers to come up with transformative ideas.

Challenge Statement: How might we ‘crack the code’ to gender equality in Canberra? What are some initiatives or projects that you and your team could implement around innovation, access, inclusion, and education?

*Please note: this event will be photographed. Some of these photos may be used to promote future Canberra Innovation Network events and programs. If you DO NOT wish to be photographed, please let the photographer know on the day.


This event is a woman-focused event that intends an inclusive definition of women. We welcome trans women, nonbinary, gender non-conforming, and anyone who identifies as a woman in a way that is significant to them.
