About the Women's Leadership Program

Gain the skills, confidence and network to lead others and be a change-maker in your organisation or community. Enhance your self-awareness, overcome self-limiting beliefs, build personal resilience, and learn to skillfully negotiate, influence and motivate others to lift performance and reach organisational goals.

Explore the systematic barriers to women’s leadership and build confidence and strategies to lead change. Gain a supportive network of female peers and be inspired by motivational speakers who will empower you to reach your leadership potential.

Women’s Leadership Program is available as an open enrolment program, tailored or in-house delivery for your organisation.

“ Completing the Women’s Leadership Program has been a highlight of my career. It has allowed me to explore what leadership means to me, provided me with access to a network of amazing leaders across industries, and the opportunity to hear from a variety of keynote speakers who all role-model adaptive leadership in making an impact within their organisations and communities.”
