Support for women to reach their leadership potential

The City of Greater Geelong is calling on local women to apply for a Victorian Government leadership program that aims to increase the number of women being elected to Council.

Applications are open for the second round of the Women Leading Locally Program, offering training and mentoring to women of all backgrounds to develop their leadership skills. Geelong was well represented in the round one intake last year.

Women are underrepresented on the Greater Geelong Council, with only four female councillors out of 11.

As a leader, the City is committed to meeting the Victorian Government's target of 50 per cent women councillors and mayors in the state by 2025.

The Women Leading Locally Program will be delivered by the Institute of Community Directors Australia in partnership with Women for Election.

Applications are open until Friday 14 April 2023. Visit Women Leading Locally
