Scholarships of up to $5,000 for current and aspiring female leaders

Through the Industry Partnership Framework, Women & Leadership Australia works alongside Australian industry to create deeper awareness and action around gender equity. Widespread industry support enables WLA to reduce barriers for participation in its programs through fee discounts, partial scholarships and interest-free study loans.

Through the support of a range of associations, WLA can periodically provide scholarships for women working in the resources and engineering sector.

Increasing the representation of female leadership within traditionally male-dominated environments such as the resources and engineering sector is a high priority focus in 2020.

Scholarships of $2,000 to $5,000 can now be applied for by women at all management levels across the sector until the end of May, 2020. Expressions of interest are being sourced until Friday, 15th May via this link.

The initiative is providing junior through to executive women managers with scholarships to support their growth and development via participation in one of three flagship development programs. Participants will benefit from course content such as Elements of a Successful Team, Team Dynamics, Purpose Priorities and Professional Development, Empowering Teams, and Evolving Strategic Change
