Professional development for women

Women’s Professional Development Programme

At Otago there is a range of activities that cater for the needs of women (both general and academic). The Programme is run jointly between Human Resources and HEDC. The key activities include:

  • Mentoring programmes – there are separate programmes for general and academic women staff. For general staff women contact Suzy Keene and academic women should contact Vivienne Anderson.
  • Women and Leadership Programme (WiLO) – this Programme is designed to further develop the leadership potential of all female staff in the University. The 6 month programme runs annually, comprising a two and half day residential intensive and a follow up day. General and academic staff women from all Otago campuses are welcome to apply. For more information, or to apply for the programme, visit the HR web page, or contact hrtraining@otago.ac.nz.
