Women in Water Leadership Program

Women and men have different yet complementary sets of skills in leadership, and it is this diversity of skills that we need to harness to manage the complex issues of our times, effectively.

Designed by women, for women

Women are under-represented at 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 and men have different yet complementary sets of skills in leadership, and it is this diversity of skills that we need to harness to manage the complex issues of our times, effectively.

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, but offers time and space to learn, share and reflect on those challenges pertaining just to women.

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