The 100% Project would like to thank participants who attended ‘Level the Playing Field: Turning gender leadership rhetoric into more effective action’ for their contribution to a successful event. It is with their ongoing support to our organisation and commitment to changing the practices and mindsets within organisations, that we can fully realise the leadership potential of both men and women.
On November 14 2013 The 100% Project, in partnership with Leadership Victoria, held 'Level The Playing Field' an adaptive leadership symposium to address the lack of gender balanced leadership. The Symposium was a great success and brought together leaders from a wide range of organisations.
Facilitated by Marty Linsky, participants worked in collaboration to create solutions for the under-representation of women in senior leadership positions. Such solutions involved discarding entrenched ways, and going beyond the current ‘know how’, to create new practices that will increase the representation of women in leadership roles.
Photos from the Symposium can be viewed here.

In this edition of Beyond The Spin we discuss Adaptive Leadership.
We explore why we are finding it so hard to bridge the gap between wanting to see greater equality and actually achieving it - how we can turn these good intentions into real action. And real change. It is bridging this gap for today’s leaders that is so crucial for driving gender equality.
We interview Marty Linsky, facilitator of our upcoming Adaptive Leadership Symposium and one of the foremost thought leaders in the field. We include a beautiful article by Jill Hufnagel, exploring how we need to ‘unsettle the dust’ that gathers around the way we do things, step outside our comfort zone to try new things and test out new ways of working.
Finally, we wrap up with an example of how Adaptive Leadership theory can be applied in practice, which is what Australia Post, one of the Symposium's Gold Sponsors, is working towards, as they move to embed individual accountability for their gender equality aspirations.
