Women in Super (WIS) and the University of New South Wales (UNSW) has announced the continuation of their annual scholarship program, allowing WIS members to attend one of the Australian Graduate School of Management’s (AGSM) Executive Education Short Courses.
NSW WIS members can apply for one of the four scholarships to further their learning and leadership capabilities.
Chair of NSW WIS, Lata McNulty, said the WIS partnership with AGSM has given members an opportunity to pursue their professional and personal development.
“Since its introduction, a number of women from our industry have had the opportunity to develop their own management skills through this and other programs. With the continuation of the partnership with AGSM announced today, we can now provide the same opportunity to another four talented women,” she said.
AGSM Executive Education Head of Corporate Programs, Ros Wainwright, said AGSM is committed to developing the leadership potential of women in the superannuation industry.
“These scholarships will enable talented women to pursue executirve education across a range of core strategic capabilities to develop strategic leadership and management skills,” he said.
“Now in its fourth year, this initiative in partnership with WIS is an important part of our expanding suit of programs designed to provide access and opportunities for women in leadership.”
The AGSM is amongst the world’s elite top 100, according to the Financial Times (UK) 2018 Global MBA Rankings.
