Applications open for Women's Board Leadership Program

27 June

The Office of Prevention and Women's Equality Department of Premier and Cabinet is offering 100 scholarships in partnership with Leadership Victoria and the Australian Institute of Company Directors for Victorian weomen to access board governance training through the new Women's Board Leadership program (formerly Victorian Women's Governance Scholarship Program). 

The Women’s Board Leadership Program will support women to become influential board directors and leaders. This initiative was established in response to findings from Safe and Strong – A Victorian Gender Equality Strategy. The strategy notes that women continue to miss out on the highest levels of leadership and decision making in business, government and the community.

The new program will provide board governance training to enable a pipeline of new women board directors and to enhance gender representation in decision making.

The program will offer a tailored approach and a range of options for participants to select from, including coaching, mentoring and networking as well as the following courses:

  • Benefits of the Board
  • Foundations of Directorship
  • Board Leadership for Aboriginal Women
  • Board Leadership for Culturally Diverse Women
  • Self Advocacy and Presenting for Success in Interviews Workshop
  • Ways Women Lead
  • Company Directors Course. 

Minister for Women, Fiona Richardson, invites all women interested in enhancing their board career to apply for the program. Applications close at 5pm on Friday 21 July, 2017.

Applicants who reflect the diversity of Victoria’s population are encouraged to apply, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women, culturally diverse women, women with a disability, women who live in regional locations and trans and gender diverse people.
