Gender representation on boards to be addressed at the next St Hilda’s Business Luncheon

Fair gender representation on boards will be on the agenda at the upcoming St Hilda’s Foundation Business Luncheon at The Marriott Resort and Spa.

Hundreds of locals are expected to turn out to attend the October 19 event, which will feature a keynote address by Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk.

Guests will also be treated to a thought-provoking panel discussion surrounding gender parity on boards with MP Kate Jones, Tony Shepherd AO, Marina Go and Christine McLoughlin to share their thoughts on the barriers and challenges being faced, benefits to businesses and the community, and personal experiences.


According to a 2016 report by Deloitte, equal representation on boards would lead to $87 million in productivity gains per year in Queensland alone.

This, and other statistics relating to the economic and cultural benefits of fair gender representation will also be discussed.

Attendees will also be treated to a two course meal and drinks package, and have plenty of opportunity to network at the event.

Tickets to the St Hilda’s Foundation Business Luncheon are on sale until October 17 and are $125 for an individual and $1200 for a table of ten. For more information, and to book, visit:
