Women's Conference 2023: Embrace Equity - Public Service Association

Women’s Conference 2023: Embrace Equity

Embrace Equity was the theme for the 2023 PSA CPSU NSW Women’s Conference.

Held on 7 and 8 September 2023 at PSA House Sydney, Women’s Conference heard from high-calibre speakers unafraid to tackle serious subjects, such as sexual harassment, homelessness and the rental crisis, Aboriginal dispossession and countless other issues affecting women in the modern workplace.

In addition, it was a great networking event, giving women from across the PSA CPSU NSW’s diverse membership the chance to meet and share stories and opportunities.
