Melbourne Business School prides itself in presenting the Women and Management Dinner, Melbourne’s forum where women and men are moved to celebrate the successes of inspirational women and delve deeper into what more needs to be done to support the careers of women in management.

The 26th Women and Management Dinner will take place on Thursday 21st June 2018 against a backdrop of sophistication and heritage rarely seen in Australian venues; in the stunning Myer Mural Hall, Level 6, Myer, Bourke Street.

At this much-anticipated annual event members of Australia’s business community join Melbourne Business School faculty, alumni and students for a night of celebration and discussion about women in leadership. 

Melbourne Business School supports women to have positive and lasting impact on their own and international communities but with your help we can do more.  This is why we’re launching the When Women Win, We all Win campaign, which will provide seed funding for the Executive Program for Women Leaders.  More about the program will be shared on the evening.

Capacity is strictly limited and the Dinner sells out each year.  Will we see you there?

The theme of conversation on the evening will be resilient leadership.  Professor Jill Klein will provide an opening address, sharing her latest work.  Following this, WAM co-founder, Professorial Fellow Amanda Sinclair, will lead a panel conversation during which the themes introduced by Jill will be explored in the contexts of the panellists’ own experiences in their diverse careers.

MBS Sponsors

Melbourne Business School thanks the following sponsors and partners for their commitment to the Women and Management Dinner. Proceeds from the evening will enable Melbourne Business School to provide more opportunities to women in leadership.


New Executive Program

MBS has made a commitment to launch the Executive Program for Women Leaders in 2018. The aim of this program is to provide upcoming and established women leaders with the opportunity to invest in themselves, and transform the way that they lead, manage and innovate in organisations and challenging contexts.

Tailored to high-achieving women in both the public and private sector who seek to make greater contributions to their organisations and communities. The five-day course is a unique opportunity to work with a community of women who are facing similar challenges in their personal and professional lives.




In the heart of Melbourne lies a chic European ballroom with soaring ceilings, sweeping stairs and city views peeking through original leadlight windows. It is against this backdrop that women’s leadership will be celebrated at the Women and Management Dinner.
