Women’s Board Leadership Program.


Victorian Government in partnership with Leadership Victoria and the Australian Institute of Company Directors are offering 100 scholarships for Victorian women to access board governance training through the new Women’s Board Leadership Program.

The program will support women to become influential board directors and leaders.

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.

Applications close at 5pm on Friday 21 July, 2017.

 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.
