Women in Management program

The Department of Education, Training and Employment has developed a comprehensive training program to equip women with the skills they need to succeed as business leaders.

After consultation with a range of key representatives for women's issues, the Women in Management program has been designed to cover essential management and general business skills with a focus on issues affecting women in the workplace.

Designed to help women break through the 'glass ceiling', the program is comprised of three days face-to-face training over three full days followed by three half-day workshops and online learning.

The program covers a range of skills including communication, critical and creative thinking, workplace relations, leadership, conflict management, teamwork, stress management, presentation and negotiation skills, networking, operational planning and scheduling, finance and marketing.
