The Leneen Forde Future Leaders Program will support the development of women who are succeeding in leadership roles and who we hope will seek to further their leadership contributions in the future.
Creating an organisational culture in which women participate equally at all levels allows us to be more effective at teaching, learning and research, and helps the University in its pursuit of excellence. Our strategy as a University has been to work continuously to identify and address the traditional and not-so-traditional disadvantages faced by women, to support their aspirations and to ensure they participate in the leadership and development of the University. These aspirations have never been more important than today as Higher Education policies and our institutions move into a period of rapid change.
The Program is named in honour of Leneen Forde AC in recognition of her outstanding contribution to Griffith and to the status and progress of women nationally and internationally.
|Program Objectives||To create time and opportunity for women in leadership roles to reflect on their personal strengths and identify areas for improvement in their leadership capabilities.|
