Take your career to the next level

To enrich your personal and professional development, Women in Super (WIS) offers scholarships, education and training opportunities designed to inspire your present and transform your future. We encourage you to embrace our national and state-based scholarship programs that could be life-changing. Our scholarships are an added benefit for Women in Super members and another way that we support you to exceed your potential.


WIS NSW & AGSM Funded Executive Training

WIS NSW and AGSM@UNSW Business School are once again partnering to offer our members an exclusive opportunity to develop their executive management skills.  This year, due to COVID-19, we have decided to increase the number of women we support in two important ways:
First, WIS NSW is pleased to announce that it will fully fund one AGSM Virtual course (refer application conditions) for 20 Women in Super members across Australia. These fully funded courses will be available to 14 members with a primary residential address located in NSW to participate, and 1 participant with a primary residential address in each of the following states: SA, QLD, WA, ACT, TAS and VIC. Unlike previous years, these 20 places will be offered on a first-in basis (see application details and terms and conditions below). 
In addition, for any of our members who miss out, WIS and AGSM will offer the same Virtual Courses at a special rate of $420, discounted from the full price of $990. 
To take up this offer, please contact Adele Seale from AGSM via email or  on +61 (2) 9385 0296.
The AGSM courses will deliver 14 hours of learning over two weeks and are designed to be highly interactive. They include a blend of live virtual workshops, action learning and coaching so that you can still share experiences, learn from other participants, and build your professional network.
There will be about 6 hours work outside the webinars, for digital learning an reading, action learning tasks and self- reflection.

There is a range of courses available, all particularly relevant for the changes in work and leadership we are currently experiencing. Please check the dates before applying, however AGSM may look to add further dates.
AGSM is Australia’s leading graduate school of management, offering global top-tier programs, and is amongst the world’s elite top 100 (Financial Times UK 2018 Global MBA Rankings). Recipients can choose from a range of courses focused on dynamic development that empowers students. As with all AGSM courses, participants will receive points towards an AGSM Certificate in Executive Management and Development and digital badging.

Applications are encouraged from women of all levels of seniority and experience.
Applying for the fully funded course  is easy, BUT you need to get in quick:

  • WIS will allocate fully funded courses to the first 20 applications received (14 from NSW and 1 from SA, QLD, WA, ACT, TAS and VIC)
  • You must be WIS member for the 2019/2020 financial year*
  • You must also confirm that you are able to commit to the 14 hours of learning for their selected course, including the required contact hours. If the chosen course is not available, an alternative course will be offered under the same conditions. Required contact hours for each course are detailed below
  • Maximum of two successful applicants per institution

The application form will be sent out to all Women in Super members at midday on Friday 15 May 2020. Applications will open at 12pm AEST on Friday 15 May and will close at 5pm AEST on Wednesday 20 May 2020. Successful applicants will be advised at end of application period, but don't delay - these are sure to get snapped up!
