ABOUT THE CAFBA & WLA PARTNERSHIP

For the past six years, CAFBA have partnered with Women & Leadership Australia to address gender imbalance in the commercial and equipment finance industry by supporting more women to build their leadership capability through world-class leadership development programs.

This partnership has so far supported 60 women to undertake one of Women & Leadership Australia’s flagship leadership development programs, and graduates have found their experience to be enriching and beneficial, both personally and professionally.

The programs will support you to unlock your leadership potential, build confidence, reflect and open up networking opportunities to learn from women across finance and other industries. We encourage you to nominate yourself, colleagues or members of your staff who want to take the next step in their careers.

The scholarships available will cover part of the program fees, however CAFBA will endeavour to find sponsors to assist with the balance of the fees.

Expressions of interest for scholarships are now open, and close on Friday 26 November 2021.

CAFBA are pleased to announce that registrations are once again open to participate in one of Women & Leadership Australia’s (WLA’s) leadership development programs for women working in the equipment finance sector.
