Women in Water Leadership Program

Why women?

Women are under-represented on the leadership table, particularly across the STEM, policy and governance fields.

We also know that organisations with gender diversity in leadership out-perform those with largely male dominated governance structures.

Women bring a different yet complimentary set of skills to the leadership table to men, and it is this set of leadership skills that we need to harness in order to effectively manage the complex issues of our times.

The Peter Cullen Water and Environment Trust offers a bespoke approach to women’s leadership – by offering a program just for women in the water and environmental management sector – it largely follows the same approach as our Science to Policy Program however offers time and space to learn, share and reflect on those challenges pertaining just to women.

Designed by women, for women

Here’s what a few past participants have said about the program:

“You are completely immersed, it enables you to break down barriers and this is about working through the process together. I’ve got more out of this two weeks than anything I’ve ever done, ever”.

“With all women, there was a complete lack of competition, it was 100% supportive. Hearing from the women speakers was really powerful’.

“I now feel like a very proud woman, knowing who I am”.
