Women's Information and Referral Centre Ground Floor, London Court, 13 London Cct, Canberra City
As women we get very used to putting others ahead of ourselves. We look after our families, our friends and our colleagues and often lose sight of how to best look after ourselves. When we do this we often wear ourselves out and then we wonder why we have so little energy, why we seem to have trouble remembering things and why our life seems quite unrewarding and lacking in pleasure and joy.
This workshop looks at why it is so important to look after ourselves in nurturing, encouraging and healthy ways and how cherishing ourselves is one of the keys to better relationships, better health and a happier self.
The program is targeted at people with a disability who aspire to be leaders or further develop their current leadership capacity. At the end of the funding period it is expected that there will be 200 people with disability who are more skilled, more confident and more active in leadership roles in business, community, government or their chosen area of interest.
Participants will have up to 12 months access to training, coaching, mentoring and other leadership development opportunities based on their individual needs.
People with a broad range of skill levels and leadership interests are encouraged to apply. The program is committed to including a variety of participants reflecting the diversity of the Australian community.
The Leaders for Tomorrow program will be delivered nationally by NSW Consumer Support and Training Project (Hunter TAFE) and E-QUAL (Enhancing Quality). Funded by the Australian Government Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs.
