Audrey Fagan Board Traineeship Program

This program is aimed at supporting women in the ACT to develop the skills and capabilities to participate in ACT Boards and Committees. It combines a series of workshops on the fundamentals of board membership, and an associated mentoring program. Each trainee is paired with a mentor who is an existing member of a board, and the trainee also has the opportunity to be a non-participant observer in board meetings.

Applications for the 2019 program are now open. Applications for trainees and expressions of interest for mentors and boards close on 3 April 2019.
