Who can attend WIM 2024?

Women in multinationals, male allies, DEI champions, plus the local CEOs and HRDs of foreign owned companies.

CEO & HRD* members of the Abundium community receive a complementary seat.

*only HRDs with a paid HR leadership subscription.

I don't work for a multinational, can I attend WIM 2024? To ensure all those attending get a true peer experience, you must work for the local operation (ANZ) of a multinational company with a head office overseas.
What defines a ‘multinational’?

A ‘multinational’ is someone who works for an organisation that is foreign owned and based in Australia and APAC region.

How should my company choose who attends? We suggest you select one or two people from each of your functions to attend WIM based on those that have expressed their desire or demonstrated potential to move into the local country leadership team or into a role with your organisation overseas. This approach promotes cross functional collaboration and relationship building, which is key to success as a country leader. 
How does WIM 2024 compliment our in-house programs? WIM provides women leaders in multinationals with access to insights & experiences of global thought leaders, multinational CEOs, & peers
outside their company and industry. This diversity of thought & wisdom is key in a rapidly changing world where the solutions to organisational challenges do not often exist within the walls of the company.
What if I only want to come to a few sessions?

WIM is designed as a full day experience, so we encourage you to attend the whole day, however if you need to miss a session that is at your discretion. Tickets are for the full day only, we will not be selling tickets for individual sessions. 

Will there be an WIM online offering in 2024?

No, WIM 2024 will be a completely live experience however attendees will have access to recordings following the summit via an exclusive online community for WIM 2024 attendees.  

Can I get my ticket refunded?

Tickets are not refundable but you can transfer them to anyone of your choosing as long as they meet the attendee criteria (see ‘who can attend’). 

Note CEO & HRD complementary tickets are non-transferable.

How are you addressing and representing First Nations people at the event?

Abundium acknowledges the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation as the Traditional Custodians of the land where the event will take place.   

We will work to ensure the Summit recognises and respectfully upholds inclusive cultural protocols.
