Women in safety offered scholarship opportunity
A leadership scholarship worth up to $8000 is currently available for women who work in the workplace health and safety and HR sectors.
Women and Leadership Australia (WLA) offers a range of professional development programs, advisory services, networking channels and ongoing research. The programs are designed to engage female leaders in interactive, peer-oriented development environments.
The scholarship currently on offer by WLA will support female participation in an accredited leadership development program.
“Funding must be apportioned by the end of this financial year and it is unsure when these grants will be available again,” said Suzi Finkelstein, Program Director of WLA.
“This fee support opportunity provides women with funding of between $3000 and $8000 to undertake a range of leadership development programs.”
Finkelstein said she encourages women working in all aspects of the workplace health and safety sector right across Australia to consider the scholarship program.
“Based on a simple truth, that women represent an enormously under-utilised resource, we believe that supporting a greater percentage of women to step up into leadership positions enables tremendous cultural and economic benefits,” Finkelstein said.
“With so much experience in supporting women, we are ideally positioned to respond to the ever-changing needs of contemporary female leaders and their organisations.”
WLA aims to create learning experiences that not only provide best-of-breed leadership development but immerse participants in practical courses that are informed by the complexities and opportunities of being a female leader in Australia today.
