In partnership with Transforming Partnerships, Museum & Galleries of NSW is presenting a one day career management workshop for women working in the arts and cultural sector.

Who should attend this workshop?
This workshop is aimed at women working in the middle management roles that are sometimes known as the ‘marzipan layer’. This is the sticky middle slice of management where many women languish, while majority male executive teams lament the lack of diversity at the top of their organisations.

What does the workshop address?
This workshop acknowledges the reality that the arts and cultural sector is still top heavy with male leaders who are paid more than women doing equivalent roles. It also challenges the encultured biases that inform decision making in relation to leadership. However, its main emphasis is on giving women managers the tools and insight to navigate and challenge this in a way that is productive and empowering for everyone.

Areas covered
The agenda for this workshop includes topics designed to challenge and support women to step up and be seen. Specifically it covers:

  • Why diversity is important and how second generation (unconscious) gender bias works against it
  • Analysing issues related to power, masculinity and leadership in the arts and cultural sector
  • Identifying your overarching purpose and acknowledging and practicing your confident and authentic voice
  • Building powerful communication skills (with particular emphasis on influencing discussions and running great meetings)
  • Negotiating skills: for your organisation and for yourself
  • Proactively managing your career; mentors and career champions


Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea provided.

This is the first time this workshop has been run for the arts and cultural sector and we are excited by the possibilities it provides.
