Memberships & Associations
WGH is a proud member of the Australian Gender Equality Council (AGEC)
AGEC’s vision is to achieve gender equality in Australia. Through high profile national awareness campaigns, advocacy and research, it aims to drive a cultural shift in Australia so that women and men have the same rights and opportunities across all sectors of the community.
WGH worked with Gaming, Racing & Wagering Australia (GRWA) and Beacon Events to increase the female representation of speakers and panelists at their special edition of GRWA in February 2019.
WGH aims for 50% female representation as speakers, panelists and audience members. We continue to work with conference organisers to achieve this goal.
