As the first generation to fully embrace digital technology, the front row seat to disruption provides a unique perspective into what has changed, what should change and how women of any generation can create their own professional destiny.

Creative; Emma Alberici, ABC Chief Economics Correspondent; Lisa Bora, partner and leader in KPMG’s Customer, Brand & Marketing advisory; Chrissie Vincent, Head of Entertainment Management at Collarts and Vanessa Zuppicich, Creative Director at Rasic and Partners.
