RSA President's Lecture 2022

We live in a world of tumultuous change, in which democracy is in retreat, geopolitical risks are multiplying, the climate crisis is accelerating and the pandemic continues to shape our world.

Societies need to learn how to seize and shape new solutions. Yet, we come to these challenges with the historic patterns of gender disadvantage still marring life chances.

Based on her experiences in politics and her work at the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership, former Prime Minister Julia Gillard will lay out the intersections between leadership, learning and gender today and how we need to advance the global agenda.

The event will include an introduction from HRH The Princess Royal, RSA President.

Find out more about the RSA’s Cities of Learning programme which explores how to promote equality of outcomes for people and places. 

Please note, the event will be taking place both in-person at RSA House and streaming online. Please make sure to select the relevant ticket type when booking - thank you.
