The Inspectorate will be presenting at the annual conference of Australian Local Government Women’s Association Victoria (ALGWA (Vic)). Our Chief Municipal Inspector Michael Stefanovic will be joined by Senior Investigator Laura Majewski to talk about our integrity role, compliance with the local government act and good governance.

ALGWA (Vic) is a strong collective voice for democracy and supports women’s leadership in local government. The group aims to encourage women to participate in local government and make a career in local government. The conference is a great opportunity for Victorian women in local government to network.

The theme of this year’s conference is Emerging Creatively, and the event aims to inform. Connect and inspire women in local government. The conference will look at gender equality and diversity, resilience and recover in light of the pandemic.

The 2022 annual conference will be held in Greater Shepparton on Sunday 5 and Monday 6 June. Other speakers are:

  • Professor Catherine Bennett, Chair of Epidemiology at Deakin University
  • Dr Tasneem Chopra OAM, broadcaster and cross cultural consultant
  • Dr Niki Vincent, Public Sector Gender Equality Commissioner
  • Dr Padmini Sebastian OAM, Director Civil and Community Engagement, University of Melbourne
