Women & Leadership Australia has been developing female leaders and supporting the increased presence of women in business and community leadership roles for fifteen years. Based on a simple truth, that women represent an enormously under-utilised national resource, we believe that supporting a greater percentage of women to step up into leadership positions enables tremendous cultural and economic benefits. The WLA initiative comprises a range of professional development courses, advisory services, networking channels, and on-going research and is the largest female focused leadership initiative operating across Australia today.​​

Responding to the unacceptably slow pace of change towards gender equality in Australia, leading organisations have come together to form the Australian Gender Equality Council (AGEC), a national not-for-profit organisation. AGEC’s vision is simple – to achieve gender equality in Australia. Through high profile national awareness campaigns, advocacy and research, it aims to drive a cultural shift in Australia so that women and men have the same rights and opportunities across all sectors of the community. We believe that gender equality will be achieved when the different behaviours, aspirations and needs of women and men are equally valued, respected and are manifest in Australian society. AGEC’s founding members collectively represent over 500,000 women and girls.​
