Expressions of interest now open for WAGEC's new program: Lead


Published on July 28, 2022

Do you work for a Sydney-based not-for-profit with 20-100 employees?

Do you want to build your leadership confidence and skills? 

Are you interested in creating a safe and supportive workplace? 

Lead by WAGEC is a free three-month leadership program that empowers workplaces to become more accessible for and supportive of women who have experienced domestic, family and sexual violence.

We’re calling for expressions of interests from women and non-binary folks who work for Sydney-based not-for profits who want to learn about the prevention of gender-based violence and take practical actions in their workplace to support women impacted by violence.  

What will you get out of it?  

By participating in Lead, you will have the opportunity to:  

- Learn about gender equality, the impacts of violence and how to prevent violence 

- Learn how your workplace can better support employees impacted by violence 

- Develop your leadership confidence and skills through an individual leadership project 

- Access resources to support you and your work beyond the program 

- Connect with like-minded people seeking to create change in their workplace 

- Receive a certificate of completion 

What are the benefits for your workplace?  

Workplaces can play an active role in strengthening the economic security and process of recovery for women impacted by domestic violence. By taking part in Lead, workplaces may: 

- Increase their ability to attract and retain talented staff 

- Enhance their reputation and brand 

- Improve staff wellbeing, and prevent discrimination and harassment 

- Strengthen the leadership skills of staff 

What’s the commitment?  

Over the three-months participants will need to commit to a total of approximately 30 hours for workshops, support spaces and individual work, consisting of: 

3 x workshops (TBC if in-person, online or a combination of both) on:
