TOPIC: The rise of women into society's most powerful leadership roles across sectors and around the globe ranks among the most profound social transformations in recent decades.

Today, there are still many multi-dimensional issues challenging women who are striving for greatness and want to make a difference. 

Growing up in Western Sydney in the 1980s as a 1.5-generation Korean migrant, Elizabeth never dreamed she would end up in Australian politics. It’s hard to dream of becoming something you’ve never seen.

Elizabeth will share her insights and personal experiences on her leadership journey. She will focus on resilience, purpose, and perseverance.
