Event description

Description

The New Leaders is an event series that brings ambitious people together to network and learn around the theme of systems leadership.


Connect with like-minded change-makers and start conversations to build a better future.

Get ready for a networking event like you’ve never seen before. Faciliated networking is punctuated with talks from inspiring systems leaders who take centre stage to share short stories of their experiences working across sectors, leading through influence, and noticing patterns – just some of the skills required to make bold systems impact.

At our January event, 88% of the 250 attendees left with at least two exciting connections, over 90% said they were inspired to further explore systems leadership, and 75% said they’d recommend the event to a friend.

Systems leaders ask why before they ask how.

Systems leaders don't dominate, they collaborate.

Systems leaders have more questions than answers.

Learn to lead through influence, not control.


Fellows from Studio Y’s current cohort will also be hosting breakout sessions before the official event begins. We encourage you to attend for a glimpse into the systems challenges we’ve spent the last eight months exploring! You will be prompted to let us know if you’d like to attend these when you register.
