Join us for a special Women in Tax lunch with the opportunity to network with practitioners, reflect on our experiences and re-envision the future of women in tax.

Our theme for this year is “resilience” and leading our lunch discussion will be one of Australia’s pre-eminent tax lawyers, Jennifer Batrouney AM Q.C. Jennifer will share some of her career experiences and give insights into how to thrive as a woman in the challenging and rewarding field of tax despite hurdles or setbacks.

Previous audiences have described Jennifer as “terrific”, “inspiring”, “always wonderful”, saying that they “love listening to her speak” and “enjoyed how candid and practical her insights were”. She is an inspiring speaker for women at all stages in their career and this will be an event not to be missed. Numbers are limited and tickets are expected to sell out quickly, so book early to secure your place at this special and inspiring event.
