Women in Leadership Conference
The 2021 SAICA Women in Leadership Conference will feature in-depth conversations and idea exchanges around the topics of leadership, career development, innovation, self-care, entrepreneurship, the future of work, connectivity, social impact, gender equality, activism and advocacy and much more!
The professional environment has no shortage of inspirational women. To celebrate and inspire the female leadership of today and tomorrow, the annual Women in Leadership Conference takes ownership of the month of August.
This multi-speaker conference aims to provide a platform of engagement for women in the business environment. The overall objective of the conference is to reinforce the message that women are the architects of who they are and who they want to become. The measure of “success” is theirs to define.
Conference speakers will consist of our “Change-makers” – inspiring women in prominent positions, such as CEOs, CFOs, Industry Experts and other key executives in business. Speakers will delve deep into the topics at hand, sharing insightful knowledge from their personal experiences and knowledge within their respective areas of expertise.
The virtual conference will take place over 8 days between 3 and 26 August. Sessions will take place in the mornings (09:00 – 12:30). The sessions will range from panel discussions, interview styled conversations to keynote speaker addresses, themed to the topic of the week.
The measure of “success” is their own to define.
4 Themes – 12 Topics Across 8 Days, including 7 Days of Coaching

In addition to the conference sessions, there will be 7 “Power Hour” sessions. These are pre-booked intimate group coaching sessions with leading business, executive and life coaches, who will offer their professional expertise in leadership, strategy, innovation, entrepreneurship and career and personal development.
What value do I get?
The “Power Hour” sessions are pre-booked coaching sessions with leading business, executive and life coaches, who will be offering their professional expertise on aspects relating to leadership, strategy, innovation, entrepreneurship and career and personal development. Delegates would need to book their slots in advance and prepare a 60-second summary of their specific challenges or goals and then head into the breakaway room to meet with the specific “coach”. To optimize the coaching experience, sessions are limited to groups of 10 people on a first-come-first-serve basis.
In keeping with SAICA’s social citizenship theme, we will encourage delegates to sign-up on the For Good Virtual Volunteering platform.
This is an online platform that connects passionate people willing to volunteer their time and skills to Non-Profit Organisations and other community service organisations.
We have partnered with Women Lead Movement (WLM), an organisation that promotes gender equality at community level and promotes active and participatory citizenry.
