Christine Nixon to Showcase Her New Book – Women Leading

Thursday 2 November 2017

Christine Nixon, former Chief Commissioner of Victoria Police, will visit Bendigo and Castlemaine Libraries to speak about her new book Women Leading, co-written with Amanda Sinclair.

Women Leading smashes tired prescriptions that women should lead like men, highlighting a long history of innovative female leadership. Through stories, examples and research, this new guide for women shows how to be a positive leader while maintaining health and humour.

“Christine Nixon has been such a prominent public figure in Victoria for so long and is a strong advocate for women’s rights. We are looking forward to hearing her insights into a subject that impacts so many in our community,” said Jess Saunders, Goldfields Library Corporation Acting Programs and Events Manager.

Christine served as the first female Chief Commissioner in Australia from 2001-2009, then went on work with the Victorian Bushfire Reconstruction and Recovery Authority to assist communities affected by the Black Saturday bushfires. She has been a strong advocate for human rights and women’s rights since beginning her career in the police force in the early 1970s.  

Christine will speak on Thursday 23 November from 2-3pm at Bendigo Library, and from 5.30-6.30pm at Castlemaine Library.

Both sessions are free and book sales and signings will be available.
