Our Vision

To be the national trusted independent resource for research and information about Australian women leaders.  We aim to be an active participant and authorative voice in the development of women leaders in Australia.

Our work is founded on research.  We use quantitative and qualitiative techniques to learn about Australian women leaders, their leadership roles, paths they took and impact they made.  We study women across a diverse range of industries and professions in business and the community. The Reibey Institute’s mission is to inform individuals, world,  governments and community groups with rigorous fact-based exploration into Australian women leaders. Through the findings of our research, women and organisations will have more information to be able to make décisions for their own strategies that support the development of women leaders. We are a research centre, with an independant  and contemporary leadership perspective. The Reibey Institute will contribute to the development and awareness of women leaders with thought provoking but sensitive insight.
