Applications open: 2023 National Leadership Program

Are you ready to bring your unique leadership approach to the biggest environmental challenges we face?

Now is the time to step up.

Leadership in Australia has failed to respond to our environmental and climate crises. We will not get out of these crises by relying on the same leadership that got us into them – outdated leadership that has enabled environmental destruction, gross inequality and marginalisation of diverse voices. 

You are part of the solution.

“This is a decade where we need to upskill ourselves, be connected together and collaborate to achieve and address the key challenges of our time, and the program helps us by skilling us up, connecting us and really being alive to the contribution that we as women are uniquely placed to make for this particular decade and beyond.”

2023 WELA National Leadership Program

What is the National Leadership Program?

This program addresses how women’s leadership can transform our response to our environmental and climate crises. We empower women and gender diverse people to identify their own approach to leadership, and to recognise and step into their power to influence. 

Are you...

  • Wanting to identify and deepen your own style of leadership
  • Facing barriers in creating change - these barriers are as diverse as the women who do our programs, including personal, organisational, family, cultural and systemic
  • Overwhelmed with the state of our environment and inadequacy of the leadership styles and solutions to date
  • Looking for a community of supportive, diverse women to champion a better future alongside
  • Working for and committed to our environment (paid or unpaid)

Then you're in the right place.

The WELA National Leadership Program is transformational for women who want to accelerate positive change for our environment and climate.

WELA’s National Leadership Program has successfully supported the leadership, career development and influence of over 135 women and gender diverse changemakers since 2016.
