Funding for Women’s leadership Development:

Up to $8,000 available

Building on the significant developmental momentum achieved earlier in the year, Women & Leadership New Zealand is administering a national initiative to support the development of female leaders across NZ’s transport and logistics sector. The initiative is providing women with grants of between $3,000 and $8,000 to enable participation in a range of leadership development programs. The scholarship funding is provided with the specific intent of providing powerful and effective development opportunities for transport and logistics sector women; however the funding is strictly limited and has to be allocated prior to the end of 2017.
