Win a $3,000 scholarship to participate in WLA’s emerging leaders program

Work in Professional Services? Want to sharpen your leadership skills? Have the XX chromosome? Then you might be interested in the scholarships of up to $3,000 available to women professionals for the WLA Emerging Leaders Program.  At a time when the workforce is defined by skill shortages, this program is part of a nationwide initiative to assist Australian organisations to unlock the potential of their frontline and mid-level female managers.

Designed in response to feedback from leading employers and employer groups, the program provides a practice-based platform to enhance the capabilities of existing managers, in preparation for future advancement.  For participants, the program offers an opportunity to reflect on their career aspirations and refocus on the next stage of their leadership journey. In addition to inspiring them towards peak performance, the program sets out to assist students to create powerful, life-long connections. Read more about the program here

For a copy of the scholarship application form, contact Nicole Miran-Khan by email or phone her at WLA on 1300 138 037.

I haven’t been here in a while as the writing has been on hold. But I was reminded today that there are things in our life that light us up. That might take us out of our comfort zone but, once you sit with it, bring you both joy and a sense of “I can do this” achievement. These moments are such a gift. So I’m curious, what’s your special thing that lights you up?

Despite (or in spit of) my professional career, these moments for me normally involve my horses. I’ll never be an equestrian Olympian, but I take great pleasure in all the lessons my horses teach me. They remind me that it’s a team effort, we’re in it together, and that if I’m prepared to give a little bit more, they will too. That’s true whether we’re on the ground taking care of their feet, or grooming, or when I’m atop riding as one. Two hearts one team.
It’s hard to describe the adrenaline and joy they bring to my life. But I’d love to know, what lights you up??

And so, maybe time does change some things. Or women do.
