Audrey Fagan Board Traineeship Program

Applications are now open for the Audrey Fagan Board Traineeship Program. The Board Traineeship Program is a new program in 2018 and the objective is to develop the skills and expertise of ACT women in order to increase their participation in decision-making and leadership roles.

Whilst the ACT is leading the way with female membership on boards, this program also provides the opportunity to increase representation from Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (LGBTIQ) people, Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people, people with culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and people with disability.

The Program will connect women (the trainee or mentee) to a board and mentor, and will provide them with an opportunity to receive support to further their interests in corporate governance and to participate in a professional mentoring relationship to assist with achieving career goals.

The program comprises:

  •          Four workshops, on the fundamentals of corporate governance;
  •          A board orientation process;
  •          Attendance at scheduled board meetings;
  •          Regular one-on-one meetings with assigned mentor/s; and
  •          Work site visits (if applicable);

Further information is in the attached guidelines and application form. This vacancy is also advertised on the Diversity register 

Boards and committees who are interested in participating in the program please contact Office for Women via email or on 02 6205 0515
