Supporting women in leadership: nrm | landcare | environment
Wednesday, 15th November 2017 09:30 AM - 04:00 PM
This workshop is the second of two, and aims to support women in the NRM, Landcare and Environmental sector. It will take place in ALBANY in the Great Southern on Wednesday 15th November from 9.30am to 4.pm.
The recent workshop, held in Manjimup (21st Sept), was very successful and received excellent feedback from all participants.
The workshop leverages the outreach of the WELA – Women in Environmental Leadership Action Leadership Program that took place in Victoria 2016 and 2017. The WELA program included participants from most states and many diverse backgrounds in the sector.
It is hoped that bringing this experience to the region will be of great benefit to begin to support and mobilise women in leadership roles in the Great Southern.
Dr Louise Duxbury will be one of two key speaker and a co-facilitator at the event. Dr Duxbury, a WELA facilitator, Founder of Green Skills Inc, and long term resident of the Great Southern brings almost four decades of experience, insight and passion in the environmental sector.
Dawn Atkin, Symposium Coordinator said “We hope this workshop, the second of two, will seed the path for more leadership development and networking opportunities for women in the sector and across the region. Our aim is to strengthen the development of resources, pathways and mentoring opportunities for the future.”
The one-day leadership event includes two speakers, opportunities for women to share their experiences, connecting and leadership skills development. All participants will also have access to TWO professional FREE one to one coaching/mentoring sessions after the event to support their ongoing development. This is great value.
This workshop series has been supported by Royalties for Regions, the StateNRM Department for Communities.
