Gemma Munro

Founder, Director & Chief Visions Officer
Award winning business leader

Dr Gemma Munro, Founder of Inkling Women, is one of Australia’s best recognised speakers on gender diversity and women in leadership. She has delivered keynotes at PayPal, Nissan and Qantas, and her talk at Google Headquarters in Silicon Valley was livestreamed to every Google office in the world. Gemma has now inspired over 68,000 people on every continent except Antarctica (and speaking in Antarctica is firmly on her bucket list, despite her wimpiness in cold weather).

Prior to Inkling, Gemma was a tremendously serious management consultant (she knows better now) and is a recovering academic, having completed her PhD in performance psychology at a relatively young and impressionable age. 

Outside of work, Gemma is a trained classical singer and traversed the world singing in grand and dusty places like Westminster Abbey, Royal Albert Hall, Harvard College and Cologne Cathedral. But her most requested party story is singing live on stage as a backing singer for the Rolling Stones. At home, Gem likes nothing better than to cook with good friends and good wine while all the children run around looking after themselves.

What do I love most about working at Inkling?
Oh, let me count the ways! I feel blessed to be doing what I love – inspiring women to lead – with a team I adore in service of a better world.
When I imagine a world that is genuinely co-led by women, I get shivers down my spine. There will be less conflict, more collaboration and much better decision-making.
The fact that Inkling Women is making a clear dent in the representation of women at leadership level is what drives me every day.

If you are looking for engaging, entertaining and expert speakers in women in leadership and gender diversity, our CEO, Founder and Coaches speak at events worldwide — to critical acclaim:
