AWiL program

AWiL is an innovative development program for academic women at levels C, D and E who wish to develop and extend their leadership potential in their research, academic or professional roles. The program is run in alignment with UON's Workforce Gender Equity Plan, where the number of women in senior and leadership roles is a priority area.

The program runs from March to October and includes:

  • 4 x 2-day face-to face experiential learning workshops
  • 1-1 coaching
  • Peer support learning
  • An opportunity to hear from and work with a number of guest speakers
  • Articles, webcasts and readings that offer key leadership concepts and application to roles

The program will focus on the following content areas:

  • Adaptive Communications
  • Thriving in Complexity

Who is eligible?

The program is open to Academic women (Levels C, D and E) who are employed either in a continuing position, on a contract which either extends at least 12 months following the end of the program, or applicants must have a reasonable expectation that their contract will be renewed beyond the program end date.
