Women leading and influencing

What We Do


Australia Awards Women Leading and Influencing is delivered in three tiers, allowing scholars to engage at a level that suits their individual interests and availability.

Tier 1 - Learning & Networking

Face-to-face and online events around Australia and the Pacific connect women and men currently leading and influencing positive developmental outcomes in the Pacific with the next generation of changemakers.

Tier 2 – Developmental Leadership

Residential leadership intensives, bespoke programs and real-life leadership coaching to enrich each participant’s thinking and approach to leading and influencing change in their own contexts.

Tier 3 – From Learning to Leading & Influencing

Support for WLI alumni returning home to the Pacific through professional development and internship opportunities, network building, and access to developmental leadership project funding.

"The program moulds and showcases hidden leadership skills and potentials that women have within themselves."
