The Committee for Perth Filling the Pool research identified specific actions that could be taken by Governments, organisations and women to increase the participation and rates of progression of female leaders in decision making and influencing roles to address the current imbalance.

The increasing number of women in frontline, mid-level and senior leadership roles has highlighted the unique talents and expertise women bring to these roles. Harnessing this talent and expertise through a focused professional development experience is the purpose of this program. 

You will be guided through contemporary ideas on leadership, career planning, negotiation and management. You will also develop a greater understanding of yourself and your impact on others. You will learn how to overcome barriers that can exist in the workplace that may hinder your professional growth.


Who will benefit

This program provides a unique learning environment for women from all industries who currently hold, or aspire to positions of leadership and influence. The program will assist their professional growth and development and will help them on their ascent to the top of their profession.
