Women & Leadership New Zealand (WLNZ) pledges $15,000 to help support leadership development for current and aspiring female leaders.

As part of the 2022 Women’s Leadership Symposium, WLNZ is offering ten full attendance grants (valued at over $15,000) to women who play active leadership roles within their communities, but would otherwise be unable to attend the Symposium due to a lack of funding or employer support. 

The purpose of the grants is to ensure the views of a diverse range of women are represented at the event and to help support the development of strong and effective leadership across New Zealand’s various sectors and communities. WLNZ appreciates that the cost of participating in the Symposium can be out of reach for those who work within particular sectors or who come from different backgrounds and experiences, so the grants have been created to provide an opportunity for these women to also get involved in the event, and connect, share ideas and enhance their leadership skills.


To apply for a full attendance grant, applicants must submit responses to the following questions: 

Applications close 6 weeks prior to the event. If successful, we will be in touch via email shortly after the applications close.

To find out more, please email us at events@wla.edu.au.

Please note that the grants do not cover flights or accommodation costs associated with attendance at the Symposium.
