Women in Leadership

The Queensland Government is committed to increasing women's participation in leadership roles across the state and to strengthen women's participation in decision making and community building.

Women's participation in decision making and leadership assists the government in responding to the diverse needs of all Queenslanders.

Adopting a leadership role and taking responsibility for making decisions requires a considerable commitment of time and energy. This means that women must strike an effective balance between work, family, lifestyle, community and leadership commitments.

Leadership opportunities for women need to be flexible so they are not excluded from participation.

The department's Diversity Unit is currently reviewing its Women in Leadership Strategy.

Inspiring Women's Mentoring Program

The Inspiring Women's Mentoring program is a self-development program available to women working in AO3-AO7 positions, or equivalent. The program is designed to increase women's confidence and skills to assist them in achieving their career and personal goals.

Further information is available from Diversity on (07) 3237 0415, via email, or at the Inspiring Women's Mentoring Program Diversity webpage.
