She Leads Masterclasses

This year the Conference will also include exciting She Leads Masterclasses, which will be held in the evening of 18 May at Hotel Realm.

The Masterclasses will be run concurrently, so delegates will need to choose only one to participate in.

Find out about the Masterclass program and our fabulous facilitators. Please note that the Innovation Leadership masterclass has now sold out.

She Leads Conference Scholarships

YWCA Canberra acknowledges that some women are not always in a position to fund their participation in programs such as these.

This year we have partnered with Westpac, the Zonta Canberra Chapter, and our past Treasurer, Betty Ferguson, to offer four conference scholarships to women that would otherwise not be able to fund their participation.

One of these scholarships will be allocated to a full-time student.

We encourage applicants to explore all possible options to fund their participation (such as asking your employer or applying for a small grant) before applying for this scholarship.

Applications are now closed.
