Women’s Environmental Leadership Australia (WELA) is empowering and supporting women’s leadership for our environment, and transforming Australia’s response to the climate and environment crises.
Designed by and for women environmentalists, the WELA leadership development program has successfully supported the leadership, career development and influence of dozens of women leaders across our movements for the past four years.
When it comes to the major crises we face, we will not get out of this by relying on the same leadership that got us into it. Instead, we need new leadership styles that are networked, collaborative and responsive to diverse communities across colour, class, gender, sexuality, ability and location. Women’s leadership must play an increasingly important role in this transformation – and we are not there yet!
Now, you have the opportunity to apply to participate in the WELA 2022 leadership development program, and experience the support, skills and personal development and networks that will assist you to take the next steps in your leadership for a better future.
