CEW Leaders Program

A unique opportunity to test and develop your leadership skills
The CEW Leaders Program is 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.

“This was one of the most holistic and beneficial leadership programs I have been on. The operation and set up of the program is exceptional… it is extremely well thought out and really flows well together. You get to the end and see how it all fits together – but you need to get there to see it.”2018 participant

The Leaders Program is offered 6 times per year; twice in Sydney and once in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Singapore. Each Program comprises a full seven days delivered over three blocks approximately six weeks apart; three days, followed by two days and a final two days. The program is in its fourteenth year and on average, 190 women from over 40 organisations participate in the program each year. There are over 1,400 program alumni.

Designed and delivered by CEW members the content is structured around the personal audit. Topics include themes of power, status and communication; personal leadership styles; the leadership shadow; the power of relationships; career options; and leading in a digital world.

Executives, both women and men, are invited to speak on these topics and participants explore these issues in workshops. Involvement of CEW members and other executives together with a unique mix of participants from a wide range of organisations gives this program an ongoing competitive edge. Organisations that continue to enrol women in the program include Allens, AMP, ANZ, Australian Army, BoQ, BP, CBRE, Dept of Planning WA , Lendlease, Macquarie, QBE, Ramsay Health Care, Tabcorp, University of Sydney, Vicinity Centres, Women Sport NSW.
