Women’s Leadership and Development Program
The Office for Women administers the Women’s Leadership and Development Program (WLDP), which falls under Outcome 1.1 Office for Women of the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet’s Portfolio Budget Statement. The appropriation allocated to the program is at Table A.
The WLDP funds and delivers a range of projects specifically for Australian Women.
The objectives of the Program are to improve outcomes for Australian women in five key focus areas:
- Women’s Economic Security
- Women’s Workforce Participation
- Women’s Leadership
- Women’s Safety
- International Engagement
The Program is split into two grant streams: Project Grants and Advocacy Grants.
- The Project Grant Scheme supports Grant Opportunities (one or more throughout the year) for one-off or small-scale projects that achieve tangible improvements in outcomes linked to the government’s five focus areas. Grant opportunities under this scheme will seek applications that contribute to the achievement of: all, one, or a combination of the five key focus area outcomes listed above.
- The Advocacy Grant Scheme supports a Grant Opportunity to fund the formation of six civil society networks to ensure that women’s voices are heard in the policymaking process. These networks are known as National Women’s Alliances.
