Building leadership success through educational opportunity
From 2010-2015, Women’s Leadership Institute Australia partnered with Chief Executive Women to award two full scholarships to exceptional Australian women leaders to the Women’s Leadership Forum at Harvard Business School. One scholarship was awarded to a woman in the corporate sector and the second scholarship to a woman working in the government or not-for-profit sectors.
Women’s Leadership Institute Australia and CEW believe that education and development opportunities help build leadership success. By providing this scholarship to a leading international university, we re-enforce our belief that a global perspective is a key element for visionary leadership.
