Overview

Despite clear evidence that equality in leadership positions makes for better communities and economies, women remain underrepresented at almost all leadership levels. If we are to truly embrace diversity, we need to move beyond compliance and toward a collective recognition of the true value that capable women bring to leadership roles.

This workshop provides women with the opportunity to further their aptitude in the leadership space by supporting participants in clarifying their personal leadership brand and developing an action plan for embedding it into the workplace. By interacting with two powerful models, participants will be guided through activities that encourage personal and professional applications with a view to enabling them to be the best leader they can.

In addition, this training will support the Public Sector Commission 'Workforce Diversification and Inclusion Strategy for WA Public Sector Employment 2020-2025' by working towards increasing the representation and inclusion of women at leadership levels of the WA public sector.
