Leadership Development Courses

Now in its final year, this scholarship program is co-funded by Hort Innovation and Women & Leadership Australia (WLA) and provides scholarships valued up to 83% of the standard program fee.

A limited number of full scholarships are available for women working within levy-paying organisations in the apple, pear, potato or vegetable sectors.

In 2021, a maximum of 22 Leading Edge, 5 Executive Ready and 5 Advanced Leadership Program scholarships will be available.

These scholarships support emerging, middle and senior women leaders. Delivered part-time and fully online, our courses are designed for women who are already employed, and combine a focus on applied learning with the latest in leadership theory and practice.

Scholarships are available to those working in both levy and non-levy paying horticultural organisations, including wholesalers, distributors and research and development bodies. Both individuals and groups of employees within the sector are encouraged to apply.

This unique initiative is a collaborative five-year funding partnership between Hort Innovation and WLA, and demonstrates the commitment of both parties in bringing about gender equity within Australia’s horticulture industry.
