Women on Boards has launched its 2012 high level learning and development program for women aspiring to leadership roles.
The Next Generation of Female Corporate Leaders aims to increase the visibility of high potential women within their organisations and sectors.
Executive Director of Women on Boards Claire Braund, said the program seeks to provide participants with the confidence and capacity to successfully engage with senior leadership and boards.
The program is hosted by Commonwealth Bank of Australia which has set itself the goal of increasing the representation of women at Executive Manager level and above to 35 per cent by 2014 and already has three female directors on the board.
The program runs from March to September 2012 in Sydney, NSW, across three two-day sessions with some external project work.
To apply for the program women will need to be identified as, or with aspirations to be, a leader within their organisation or professional sector.
Women on Boards is offering two scholarship places to the program to women who are working at CEO, CFO or similar level for a Not for Profit / community organisation or industry association.
For more information, and to apply, go to Women on Boards http://www.womenonboards.org.au/ Applications close on January 27, and will be reviewed by the Chair and Executive Director of Women on Boards and an independent person.
