A conversation with Pia Turcinov AM

Pia Turcinov AM is a technology trailblazer who knows better than most about how innovation can provide opportunities to empower women.

Awarded a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in 2023 for her services to women in STEM, Pia will share insights from her incredible 30+ career at our Executive Women’s Leadership Forum on Thursday, 18 April.

Her self-described passion for disruption, entrepreneurship and connecting Australian smarts to the world has seen her build a fascinating career as a director, investor, advisor, mentor, entrepreneur and champion of women in business.

The Executive Women’s Leadership Forum is a community of executive level, senior and future-leading women in Committee for Perth’s membership, who meet throughout the year to hear from inspiring leaders about their career and life journey.
