Women’s Leadership Development: Horticulture Sector

Application close: 07 Dec 2018,
Status: Open

All women currently employed by levy-paying businesses within the Australian horticulture sector are invited to apply for a limited pool of scholarship funding that has been provisioned for participation in a range of leadership courses. The grants are allocated with the specific intent of providing powerful and effective development opportunities for women who own or work for horticultural levy-paying businesses.

The scholarships are applicable for women who are emerging leaders, mid-level managers or those with senior/executive level experience. The funding is available both to individuals and groups of employees within all levy-paying horticultural organisations across Australia.

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. 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. A payment plan is available for successful course applicants if preferred.
