Integral Women in Leadership is a specific, targeted program that reinforces the strengths women have to be leaders in the workplace, while recognising that they often face leadership challenges which are different and additional to those faced by their male counterparts. In a safe and collegial environment, participants will be able to speak honestly about their personal leadership experience in order to learn from each other, as well as from the experienced facilitators and inspiring guest panellists.
Topics will focus on the issues identified as being the key to success for women as they advance their careers, including working within a personal purpose, resilience, leading change, negotiation and strategic use of support systems. Participants will also be asked to prepare a ‘challenge statement’ prior to the program, on which they will receive peer and coach support to identify a solution.
Why Women In Leadership Now?
Numerous studies have shown that organisations with greater gender diversity at their leadership levels outperform those without. Increased innovation, improved governance and better market performance are some of the measured benefits. However, many organisations in Australia are still failing to realise those benefits – with currently only 2% of the top ASX 200 companies headed by women. While there are numerous strategies organisations can engage to increase the numbers of women at their leadership tables, individual women can also benefit from exploring the key challenges that they face in advancing their leadership, and focus on developing the right skills to immediately begin ‘leaning in’ to their careers.
