What’s it like to be a woman with career goals? What do we have to do to become better leaders? How do we challenge stereotypes in the workplace?
In this intimate conversation with Diana Ryall, an avid promoter of women achieving their career goals and Founder of Xplore for Success, we’ll challenge the stigma of women in the workplace, explore fresh ideas in leadership and leave you prepped to tackle your professional journey.
It was great and reassuring to see other people who were just like me - coming to terms with their cultural upbringing and how that affects their work. To know there are other people going through this makes this makes me realise I don't have to try and work this out alone - there's now a whole community here to support, and work things out with me!
It's an invigorating feeling to be surrounded by people who stand for the same thing: to grow leadership ourselves and our communities. I realised that even though our communities may be different - in gender, in affiliation or ethnicity - the goal itself did not change, and DAWN allowed us to share past experiences, and tease out future project ideas together...generally over good food and wine.
I attended the second and fifth Conversations last year and found it fascinating to hear the experiences of accomplished Asian-Australians from a diverse range of professional fields. It was both inspiring to hear how they had overcome their culture-and gender-related challenges, and reassuring to learn that they too had experienced such challenges! The Conversations also provided an opportunity to network with other like-minded people: networking which for me, unlike any other event I had ever attended, came very naturally and made me feel very much at ease. It was a welcoming and supportive environment, with an implicit connection among us due to our similar cultural heritage.
