Over the past two years, over 500 associations and professional bodies have helped to recognise our important role in creating active communities and developmental opportunities to support practical and tangible outcomes around gender equity by actively promoting WLNZ’s work throughout their industry. The breadth and sustainability of this support is testament to a widespread commitment from Australasian industry to drive real, long-term change. Whilst we still have a lot of work ahead of us, together with industry we hope to position New Zealand as a global leader in gender equity in the workplace.​


Through the Industry Partnership Framework, WLNZ is supported by hundreds of Australasian industry associations and professional bodies each year to create deeper awareness and action around gender and leadership. Indeed, the unique power of the brand-building and advocacy work contributed by Australasian industry is the driving force behind WLNZ.​

At a tangible level, the investment by Australasian industry in actively promoting the WLNZ agenda and its leadership development streams enables WLNZ to reduce barriers for women by offering significant discounts on program fees through industry scholarships. In addition, WLNZ is able to offer interest-free study loans to program enrolees.​

WLNZ acknowledges the critical role of all our industry supporters in making these benefits possible for organisations and individual women. The framework and resulting benefits will remain active across particular industries only through ongoing industry support.​
