about the program about the program

Focus aims to provide young women with the essential leadership skills they need to engage in a successful, meaningful career.

The initiative addresses the underrepresentation of women in senior roles in Australia. It is designed to support young women to develop their leadership skills, aspire to senior roles in business and the community, and foster a sense of self-belief that will encourage them to aim high.

The program can be delivered face-to-face in the workplace, digitally or as a combination of both (blended). It involves female students working in small groups with female executives who act as role models and mentors. Mentors sharing their own career journeys and challenges can make an enormous impact as students consider their options for the future.

The three, fully facilitated, structured 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 who already demonstrate leadership potential.
