Student Leadership Conference 2021

January 13, 2021, 8:00 am - January 15, 2021, 5:00 pm, Virtual event,

Following the restrictions of COVID-19 and for the health and safety of our attendees, the Alliance is excited to announce that we’ve gone virtual!

We’ve made it possible to include SLC 2021 as part of your schools internal leadership programme by opening registration to ALL student leaders in their final year of secondary school.

Student leaders will come together for a 3-day programme designed specifically to support girls to become confident and effective leaders.

Using the power of technology, SLC 2021 will give virtual attendees the same life changing experience without the need to travel. This means students can still participate as they would normally; jumping into Q&As with speakers, interacting and networking with other student leaders.

If possible we will convene some local face-to-face sessions.


Renowned US speaker, author and leadership expert Rachel Simmons will lead a session for students on ‘Redefining your beliefs about success and failure’.

Expat Australian journalist and speaker Meggie Palmer who has featured in media outlets including CNBC, Vogue, Marie Claire, Forbes, Women’s Agenda, News Corporation, ABC’s The Drum and others will speak about driving change and the gender confidence gap.


Your Year 12/13  student leadership team


Students will have an unparalleled opportunity to connect with like-minded leaders from around the world, to build motivation, self-belief and resilience for the year ahead. Attendees of SLC 2021 will also be invited to two virtual follow-up sessions to help them maintain that connection and momentum in their pivotal leadership year.
