What lies beneath? Heather J MacKenzie from Denver Colorado, a renowned leader and speaker on startups, entrepreneurship and female leadership, joins Niki Vincent (EO Commissioner), Donny Walford (business leader) and Rebecca Morse (Channel 10 news).

#metoo and related campaigns have nudged the tip of the iceberg that represents inequality and unconscious bias. Scratch the surface a little harder and it’s easy to understand why topics such as mental health, power inequality and behavioural norms dominate the media. But do they dominate our board rooms and exec meetings? Does corporate Australia really appreciate that change runs deeper than harassment and bullying policies?

More importantly, what has driven a culture where inequality and harassment can be tolerated, and how has this impacted our behaviors and expectations for our own careers?

Join us for breakfast with Heather J MacKenzie, a renowned leader and speaker who helps impact-driven organisations find their true purpose and believes that we are all more alike than we are different.

Heather will open with a keynote on her own #metoo story. She will also discuss the importance of inclusion over diversity and breaking lifelong patterns that may be holding us back from achieving our true potential. Implications for work and personal life will be discussed with our panel including Donny Walford (ABC board member  and founder of a leading national network of businesswomen, BCD) and Niki Vincent (Equal Opportunity Commissioner). Our facilitator Rebecca Morse (Channel 10 news and media personality) will guide the discussion.
