WLI participants and alumni can apply to undertake work experience with an Australian or Pacific organisation or participate in a professional development opportunity.
Women’s Developmental Leadership Program (WDLP) participants and select LeadershipConnect participants can apply to undertake a workplace internship or professional development opportunity to enhance leadership capacity.
Taking a range of forms depending on the location, interests, and resources of the participant, these experiences develop leadership and professional skills and forge lasting relationships and networks.
All internship proposals demonstrate a clear benefit to the participant, the participating organisation and the Pacific region, whilst not taking the place of, or resembling, formal employment.
Alumni participating in these opportunities often describe them as one of if not the most influential experiences of their WLI journey.
