Women’s Leadership Initiative 2020

Launched in June 2016, the Women’s Leadership Initiative is a five year, $5.4 million initiative of Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade committed to Pacific women’s leadership through learning, networking and mentoring.

The Initiative is a targeted and coordinated approach to see women’s leadership flourish and to consolidate people-to-people links in the region.

Through a range of individual and team activities, women and their male colleagues are challenged to consider gender and development while consolidating their personal and collective skills and ambitions.

Why apply?

The Women’s Leadership Initiative is delivered in three tiers, allowing scholars to engage at a level that suits their individual interests and availability.

  • Tier 1 – Learning & Networking
    Events and online learning modules create a shared vision for women’s leadership – including an emphasis on male champions of change – for men and women.
  • Tier 2 – Leadership & Mentoring
    Residential leadership intensives, mentoring, bespoke programs and real-life leadership coaching.
  • Tier 3 – Workplace Internships
    Selected participants of the Leadership & Mentoring program are placed in Australian or Pacific organisations to gain experience and build professional networks.
