In 2019, we will be participating in The Observership Program for the first time. This program provides a young, talented and energetic individual with training and practical experience on a not-for-profit board. The structure gives the participant a learning experience like no other and ongoing networking opportunities that create a passionate and motivated community of future leaders. For Women in Super (WIS), it will involve welcoming an Observer to sit on our Board for a 12-month period as a non-voting member. If you would like to learn more about this program, or are considering applying to be an Observer, please click here.

As a WIS member, you join part of AGEC’s network of over 500,000 women and girls. Working together, we aim to drive a cultural shift in Australia’s attitudes towards gender equality through national campaigns, underpinned by rigorous empirical research.
There are still significant inequalities in Australia despite both the suffragette movement and the Women’s Liberation Movement of the 1970s. AGEC, with our help, aims to resolve these inequalities:
