Year end funding for women’s leadership development available

Women & Leadership Australia have residual funding available to support the development of female leaders across Australia’s research and consulting sector.

The initiative is providing women with grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 to enable participation in one of three programs that cover such things as elements of a successful team, communication, presence and influence, driving performance, problem solving and decision making, and progressing diversity and inclusion.

The scholarship funding is provided with the specific intent of providing powerful and effective development opportunities for research and consulting sector women but has to be allocated by the end of 2020.

The initiative

For more than 16 years WLA has been developing female leadership and supporting the presence of women in business and community leadership roles through the Industry Partnership Framework. Prioritising women who work in the research and consulting sector has been a key component of our strategic impetus to date, particularly at the senior level within organisations.

The scholarships were originally meant to be allocated in March and April, however things got significantly delayed and disrupted due to COVID-19. This residual funding now needs to be awarded by the end of 2020
