Leadership Victoria and the Islamic Council of Victoria (ICV) are proud to announce the Muslim Women’s Leadership Initiative.
The Muslim Women’s Leadership Initiative offers a package of programs and activities designed to foster leadership in Muslim women in Victoria through building connections with people currently exercising leadership, and to establish connections and understanding within and between faith, ethnic and other demographic communities in Victoria.
The aim through offering these programs and activities, is to empower Muslim women to develop their capability and confidence, represent those within their faith, and to challenge the stereotypes for Muslim women. Participants will build networks and connections to drive broader systematic and cultural change, and to contribute to making progress on complex social, economic and environmental issues facing Victoria, Australia and the world.
The program covers an outstanding selection of critical issues facing today’s leaders, brought to life by seminars from renowned leaders, field trips, case studies and other activities that culminates in an end-of-year retreat. Williamson is a unique, experiential ten-month program, that will equip you to tackle contemporary leadership challenges.
In Williamson, you will undergo a unique learning experience addressing the emerging social, economic and environmental issues of the coming years and decades. You will be challenged and will dig deep into yourself: examining your values, examining your worldviews and assumptions. You will prepare yourselves for leading change, for leading with authority and – even more importantly – leading where you have no authority but where Australia needs leaders to step up and create change.
