Leadership Development

Women are significantly under-represented in decision-making in Australia. More diversity through female voices at every level of leadership will deliver better decisions and more equitable outcomes for Australia.

CEW aims to achieve greater gender balance through:

  • Female leaders – to enhance career opportunities for managers to senior level executives aiming for a role in the C-suite
  • Organisation leaders – to drive the advancement of women and develop best practice gender action plans

Below are two key leadership programs CEW currently operates to deliver our mission and grow the number of women in senior executive roles.


A bespoke leadership program developed to inspire and equip women to fulfil their leadership potential. The program provides women with the skills to take their place alongside men so that organisations deliver the best possible outcome for customers, shareholders and the community.

What our participants think

The women who take part in the CEW Leaders program consistently say it’s insightful, inspiring, welcoming and supportive. Many credit it as playing a key role as their careers progress after its completion.

The speakers have been outstanding. The real life experiences and knowledge from successful women was great. The review of self in the strengths was also a highlight as many personal development courses are focused on the weaknesses.
