The initiative

The Year of Women in School Leadership aims to support women in schools via a range of research, events, and programs. NESLI’s survey conducted earlier in the year found that almost 1 in 2 women have experienced some kind of gender-based barrier or discrimination throughout their careers.

This dedicated funding pool and the launch of the new Middle Leadership Program for women aims to address these challenges for as many women as possible throughout the sector, and is made possible through a collaborative partnership between the National Excellence in School Leadership Initiative (NESLI) and Women & Leadership Australia (WLA).
