Union women leading

Union Women Leading was the theme of the 2013 CTU Biennial Women’s Conference on the 26th & 27th July, which was attended by six PSA Youth members.

The earthquake in Wellington threatened to disrupt the conference but it was moved to a location closer to the airport and was a great success.

The program featured a Keynote speech from Helen Kelly, President of the CTU who spoke on key issues impacting on the union movement at local, national and international levels and the union movement’s strategic approach. There was a variety of topics such as women in male dominated industries, what it takes to be a women leader in the union movement of today, and Maori and Pacific women leadership.

The highlight of the conference was celebrity guest Robyn Malcolm who spoke about her experience as a member of Actors Equity.
