Monash Business School, together with MindTribes, is proud to offer two sponsored places in our new executive education program for professional women from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) and First Nation's backgrounds.

CALD and First Nations women have a significantly lower rate of workforce participation, are often underemployed and not represented in executive leadership in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.

The Culturally Diverse Women development program is designed to help participants break down the personal, organisational and leadership barriers they can face because of gender and cultural biases.

Delivered over five masterclass sessions, with a mix of in-person, online and peer-to-peer learning and coaching. It is facilitated by MindTribes CEO Div Pillay.
