Gender, Work & Organisation Conference 2018

13 June 2018 - 16 June 2018

The 2018 Gender, Work and Organisation 10th Biennial International Interdisciplinary Conference will be hosted in Sydney by Macquarie University from Wednesday June 13 – Saturday June 16, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency, Sydney. The conference, organised primarily as a series of streams, will provide an international forum for debate and analysis of contemporary debates affecting gender studies.

Launched in 1994, Gender, Work and Organization was the first journal to provide an arena dedicated to debate and analysis of gender relations, the organisation of gender and the gendering of organisations. The Gender, Work and Organization conference provides an international forum for debate and analysis of contemporary debates affecting gender studies. The 2016 conference at Keele University attracted in excess 400 international scholars from over 30 nations.

GWO2018 offers an amazing opportunity to network and share professional knowledge and research over 4 days in the heart of Sydney. With individual presentations under various streams and group networking sessions, the conference presents diverse geographical gender research and most current information from around the globe. As the only international conference of its kind, GWO2018 is not to be missed.

Then, in diverse teams of four, they’ve been tasked with developing commercial solutions to real-world problems posed by enterprise partners including Wesfarmers, David Jones, Alibaba Group, EY and platinum program partner, Macquarie University.

In June the Chinese cohort will arrive in Sydney and all 80 CAMPers will meet again to perfect their ideas then pitch their business solutions before a panel of judges, venture capitalists and industry experts. The Grand Finale sees the three finalists battle it out to win seed funding to take their concept to market as well as a return trip to China/Australia in 2019.

This is a high-stakes, high-speed pitching contest. Brilliant ideas, brilliant minds and smart investors make for a real life Shark Tank, all set in Vivid Sydney’s light display at The Concourse, Chatswood.
