about the program about the program

Focus   and its companion program Focus2   aim to provide young women with the essential leadership skills they need to engage in a successful, meaningful career.

The initiative seeks to help overturn the underrepresentation of women in senior roles in Australia, and the corresponding gender pays gap. The program involves female students working in small groups with female executives who act as role models and mentors. It is designed to support the young women to develop their own leadership skills, to aspire to senior roles in business and the community, and to foster a sense of self-belief that will encourage them to aim high. Sessions include an introduction to leadership styles, realising strengths and creating a leadership picture.

The program typically targets young women from Years 10, 11 and 12. Participants are students who already demonstrate leadership potential.
