Two-Day Hybrid Summit
13-14 March 2024

After a sold-out inaugural event in February 2023, The Hatchery is proud to bring the Public Sector LGBTQIA+ Leadership & Allyship Summit back to Canberra in 2024. Join us to hear from LGBTQIA+ leaders about their learnings and advice for the next generation, and from allies on how others can support team members on the path to leadership. You will also gain insights into how organisations can identify and overcome the challenges and barriers facing LGBTQIA+ leaders in the public sector, and also navigate the profound diversity and intersectionality in this community of communities.
