Funding grants of up to $10,941 per person are currently available to women who own or work for horticulture levy-paying businesses, to support participation in a leadership development program.
The grants have been allocated as part of a joint funding arrangement between Women & Leadership Australia and Hort Innovation, and provide access to one of three practical courses.
All are part-time, designed for those already employed, and are delivered via a ‘blended’ teaching model – partly online, partly face-to-face. The face-to-face components are held in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. All three courses commence several times each year in all four capital cities.
This year’s funding pool of $150,114 is part of a five year development project, and demonstrates the commitment of both parties in bringing about gender equity within Australia’s horticulture industry. Three years into the project, 28 women have graduated or are still participating in the courses.
Participants will network with women peers from a variety of industries, and cover such topics as reinforcing resilience and wellbeing, rewiring your networks, evolving strategic change, team dynamics and supporting leadership performance.
