WE are excited to offer 100 scholarships in partnership with Leadership Victoria and the Australian Institute of Company Directors for Victorian women to access board governance training through the new Women’s Board Leadership program (formerly Victorian Women’s Governance Scholarship Program).
The Women’s Board Leadership Program will support women to become influential board directors and leaders. This initiative was established in response to findings from Safe and Strong – A Victorian Gender Equality Strategy. The strategy notes that women continue to miss out on the highest levels of leadership and decision making in business, government and the community.
The new program will provide board governance training to enable a pipeline of new women board directors and to enhance gender representation in decision making.
The program will offer a tailored approach and a range of options for participants to select from, including coaching, mentoring and networking as well as the following courses:
- Benefits of the Board
- Foundations of Directorship
- Board Leadership for Aboriginal Women
- Board Leadership for Culturally Diverse Women
- Self Advocacy and Presenting for Success in Interviews Workshop
- Ways Women Lead
- Company Directors Course
Minister for Women, Fiona Richardson, invites all women interested in enhancing their board career to apply for the program. Applications close at 5pm on Friday, July 21, 2017.
We welcome applicants who reflect the diversity of Victoria’s population and encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women, culturally diverse women, women with a disability, women who live in regional locations and trans and gender diverse people to apply for the program.
To successfully connect women with board opportunities our Victorian Women’s Register will be moving. We are pleased to announce the Women’s Register is now part of the Get on Board Platform.
To register please visit the Women Victoria website.
Motorcycling Victoria is still looking for people who are interested in helping grow and develop MV and the sport.

To gain a desired gender balance on the board women with these skills are also urged to apply.
