Women & Leadership Australia (WLA) is dedicated to developing female leaders and supporting the increased presence of women in business and community leadership roles. By most measures women are an under-utilised national resource.
WLA believe that supporting a greater percentage of women to step up into leadership across all vocations and industries will have tremendous cultural and economic benefits.
Operating in all states and territories, the WLA initiative comprises a range of high quality professional development courses, advisory services, networking channels, and on-going research. With over fifteen years of experience in leadership and gender equity, we are ideally positioned to respond to the needs of the contemporary female leader.
Funding has been released to support the development of female leaders across Australia’s agriculture and viticulture sector.
The initiative is providing women with grants of between $3,000 and $7,000 to enable participation in one of three programs that cover such things as Presence and Presentation Skills, Leading Innovation and Change, and Emotional Intelligence and Conflict.
The scholarship funding is provided with the specific intent of providing powerful and effective development opportunities for women in the agriculture and viticulture sector.
If you know a woman in grape-growing or winemaking who may just need a little persuasion to grab this opportunity, contact us a Riverland Wine and we’ll see if we can add a little encouragement.
