Event Information and Schedule

The Australasian Council of Women and Policing, supported by the Western Australia Police Force will host ‘The Power of Many Equals’ Professional Development Seminar and 20th Annual Excellence in Policing Awards in Perth Western Australia.

The theme of the seminar over the one and a half days is ‘The Power of Many Equals’. It will focus on the unconscious bias movement, diversity and leadership. Equality in today’s environment has evolved and has many meanings and contexts for both women and men. In ensuring delegates understand what this means in their own roles and how they as individuals can have an impact, there needs to be clear acceptance that the power of both men and women working together as equals can create significant cultural change.

The Seminar aims to educate, challenge and encourage current and future leaders to further develop their skills on key industry topics while also providing the chance to network and build relationships.
