$40m earmarked for women’s leadership and development

Funding of $39.8 million has been announced for projects under the Women’s Leadership and Development Program (WLDP).

The money will go toward supporting a variety of opportunities intended to “break down work barriers and enable women to advance in their chosen careers or professsion”.

Five key areas, including job creation, economic security, workforce participation, leadership, and safety will be considered for funding support

Organisations that provide opportunities for older women to re-skill or re-train will also be encouraged to apply for funding, as will those that cultivate women’s leadership and development opportunities.
