Advancing FNQ Women in Business

The Cairns Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that it will be delivering a new Womens Leadership Development Program in partnership with the Queensland Government’s Office of Small Business and James Cook University across Far North Queensland. The program will support and facilitate the development of leadership skills for women in business wanting to take the next step in the development of essential leadership skills. 

The Advancing FNQ Women in Business Program will combine leadership development workshops, formal mentoring partnership and peer group networking to create an unprecedented platform for professional development and on-going support. The program will help participants accelerate their career potential and become part of an exclusive cohort of exceptional female leaders.

After successful implementation of the program, the desired outcomes will be:

  • Creating and improving the content to address capacity and skills gaps for women in business;
  • Increasing the number of women as mentors;
  • Increasing the confidence of women in business and their participation in networking or skills building opportunities;
  • Increasing the number of women who start and grow their own businesses;
  • Address capability and skills gaps for women in business. 

We are inviting all women in management positions who are seeking to move to the next level of leadership to engage in the development of this program and provide input into what elements would be valuable for their ongoing growth and further contribution to our community leadership team. 

We’re also seeking feedback from executive managers, male or female, regarding suggestions for topics or other training components that should be included in a women’s’ leadership development program.  

If you fit into either of these two categories, please fill out the expression of interest form below. We will contact all those interested in contributing with details of the focus groups.

Thank you and we look forward to developing this exceptional program with you.
