More career development support for women in local government

The Women’s Leadership and Development Program – which supports women working in local government, among other things – has received $1.8 million in new funding.

Four successful grant recipients will receive a portion of the funding this financial year (2019-20) to deliver on projects targeted towards achieving women’s economic security, and supporting women during the coronavirus pandemic.

The WLDP supports women working in local government through virtual networking, online peer support, resource sharing and research into the roles of women

Further grant opportunities will be announced in due course.
