ABOUT THE CAFBA & WLA PARTNERSHIP

For the past 5 years, CAFBA have partnered with WLA to address gender imbalance in our industry by supporting those interested to pursue further leadership development training. 

The 53 women who have done these courses over the last 5 years have spoken about how beneficial they have been, both personally and professionally, which some of you may have seen in previous posts via the CAFBA website.

The aim of these courses is to unlock your potential, reflect and open up networking opportunities to learn from women across finance and other industries, and we encourage you to nominate members of your staff who want to take the next step in their careers or even yourself as you can self-nominate.

The scholarships available will cover part of the cost of the course, however as in the past CAFBA will endeavour to find sponsors to assist with the balance of the program fees.

There are a number of scholarships available to CAFBA women across WLA’s three leadership development programs:

​EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST WILL OPEN 8AM 2nd NovemBER AND CLOSE 11:59PM 30th NOVEMBER 2020

The scholarships are allocated with the specific intent of providing powerful and effective development opportunities for women in Equipment Finance and are only available to those who are CAFBA Members.

Scholarships will look to be awarded based on a written application process provided by Women & Leadership Australia once your expression of interest has been received.

Should you wish to discuss the initiative in more detail, please contact Joseph Chan Boon at Women & Leadership Australia on (03) 9270 9048 or via e-mail at jchanboon@asam.edu.au

The Advanced Leadership Program is a high-impact and challenging developmental experience for elite female leaders. Over a career-defining, twelve-month journey, participants engage in a deep exploration of their own strengths and weaknesses as they relate to building and leading highly effective organisational communities.​
