Are you ready to bring your unique leadership approach to the biggest environmental challenges we face? Now is the time to step up.
Designed by and for women and gender diverse changemakers, WELA’s National Leadership Program will:
– enable you to identify your own approach to leadership
– support you to step into your power and influence, and
– connect you to an instant network of incredible women and gender diverse people creating positive impact for our environment and climate.
Due to the overwhelming number of applications we received last year, we’ve decided to offer TWO WELA National Leadership Programs in 2024!

Our fundraising supplements our program running costs to keep prices lower and we provide a range of full and partial scholarships. Find out about our WELA Scholarships.
We don’t want potential participants to miss out due to any barriers. If you have difficulties using a computer or face other challenges, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can discuss possible solutions.
More women in leadership roles will make our environment better. That’s my firm belief and why I’ve supported ACF staff to participate in the WELA program every year it has run. The self confidence, approach to teamwork and collaboration, and the strategic vision that ACF women have developed through their participation has been of great benefit to ACF and our movement.
“I have gained some incredible skills in management styles, leadership strategies, and understandings of why and how some of the work challenges we face today evolved and how to apply practical solutions to solve those challenges. I also experienced substantial personal growth, overcoming my imposter syndrome, that feeling that I am not good enough, not experienced enough, that I shouldn’t have a seat at the table, whatever that table may be. I am more confident and a better communicator. If you get the change, please join WELA and embrace all that the amazing team has to offer.”
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. The WELA 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
