The initiative

In conjunction with Women & Leadership Australia and Women & Leadership International, WLNZ has been developing female leadership and supporting the presence of women in business and community leadership roles for 15 years.


Providing women with networking opportunities, mentoring programs and collaborative learning pathways has been a key component of our strategic impetus to date. Your support in making your members aware of this residual funding will enable us to continue making a sizeable and demonstrable impact.
