VIP Dinner: Meet The Chiefs

By Danielle Pinkus

Laws are like sausages, you never want to see how they’re actually made. Unless you’re Canberran, that is. Future Women explores how policy making for women really happens, with power players we rarely get to hear from. In this special event, Future Women’s Jamila Rizvi speaks exclusively and off the record to Clive Mathieson, Amanda Lampe and Shadow Minister for Finance Dr Jim Chalmers, about why women’s interests too often get left behind in law making and who has the power to change it.

These former chiefs of staff to Prime Ministers Turnbull and Gillard, and Treasurer Swan have never appeared on stage together before. Their insights will be unmissable for anyone interested in the policy and political processes that shape our nation.

Presented by King & Wood Mallesons Meet The Chiefs is a window into the current state of Australian politics.
