All women currently employed in the Australian horticulture sector are invited to apply for scholarship funding that has been provisioned for participation in a range of leadership development courses.
The scholarship grants are co-funded by Horticulture Innovation Australia (Hort Innovation) and Women and Leadership Australia (WLA) and cover almost 60% of the program fee.
The scholarships are applicable for emerging leaders, women with mid-level management and leadership experience, and women working at a senior and executive level with a high degree of leadership experience.
This unique initiative is a collaborative funding partnership between Hort Innovation and WLA, and demonstrates the commitment of both parties in bringing about gender progression and equality within Australia’s horticulture industry.
All of WLA’s courses are part-time, designed for those already employed and are delivered via a ‘blended’ teaching model (partly online, partly face-to-face).
Places on the co-funded scholarship program are limited and Expressions of Interest close Friday, March 10, 2017.
