Leadership and communications training opportunities available for Canberra women


Released 15/05/2019

The ACT Government has opened applications for the Audrey Fagan Leadership and Communications Program for women wanting to gain confidence, enhance their leadership skills, and to better their public speaking skills.

The ACT Government has partnered with Life Unlimited to deliver the Audrey Fagan Leadership and Communications Program that will include a series of tailored workshops and coaching sessions as well as a suit of resources and materials.

The program is free for participants and preference will be given to applicants from diverse backgrounds, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women; women with disability; women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds; young and older women; women who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer; and women who are on a low income.

Initiatives, such as the Audrey Fagan Leadership and Communications Program, are one way in which the ACT Government continues to develop opportunities for women and girls. This support is in line with the government’s commitment towards a community where women are safe, healthy, equally represented, and valued for their contribution to society.

The ACT Government is committed to removing barriers to enable women and girls to reach their potential, contribute to innovation and ideas and to take up leadership positions. The ACT Women’s Plan 2016-26 articulates the ACT Government’s plan to achieving this commitment.

The program will run from June to September 2019. Applications close Friday 7 June 2019. To apply for this program, women need to complete and submit an application form located at https://www.communityservices.act.gov.au/women/leadership-programs
