Advisory Board Centre announces 2019 Advancing Women on Boards program in collaboration with Queensland Government.



Applications now open for Queensland women to access executive development program

Following the success of the 2018 program, The Advisory Board Centre has again partnered with the Queensland Government to provide the 2019 Advancing Women on Boards program aimed at increasing the representation of women at a Board level.

40 Female leaders and business owners will take part in a targeted support program aimed at enhancing their business thanks to the Palaszczuk Government’s Advancing Women in Business initiative.

The Queensland Government's Advancing Women in Business initiative supports and encourages more women to start and grow their own business, and attain positions of leadership.  The Advisory Board Centre was announced as one of the select group of Industry Partnership service providers.  

Advisory Board Centre COO and Advancing Women in Business program leader, Jan Easton, said that the 2019 program would build on the successful outcomes of the inaugural program delivered in Brisbane in April 2018.

“As an industry group representing the business and professional advisory sector, we hear directly from business owners and executives about their ambitions and challenges- from scaling their business, international expansion, funding, managing technology, innovation and succession planning. 

What is clear is that increasing the skills, confidence and representation of women around the boardroom table is not a women’s problem- it is an opportunity for all businesses.

To achieve their goals and keep pace with the ever changing business landscape- businesses need to very best people around the boardroom table, regardless of gender. 

The Advancing Women on Boards program is designed to educate and empower more women to step forward and step up to deliver value and make a positive economic impact on the business sector as entrepreneurs, senior executives, strategic advisors and board members.”

The Advancing Women on Boards program is aimed at established female entrepreneurs and experienced business leaders or advisors.  The 2019 program includes Masterclass events in Brisbane and Townsville facilitated by the Advisory Board Centre.  

Applications for the 2019 Advancing Women on Board program are now open to Queensland based entrepreneurs and professionals.  For full program details and application information visit https://www.advisoryboardcentre.com.au/wob/.
