Zorig Foundation: Women’s Leadership Program

Deadline: 31 August 2017

Zorig Foundation is seeking applications for its Women’s Leadership Program (WLP) which is a new initiative supported by the governments of Australia and Mongolia. WLP aims to improve leadership opportunities for women graduates when they return from studying in Australia.

The program is designed for Australia Awards alumni to enhance their abilities to compete equally in the workplace regardless of gender, and help them advance to become the next generation of Mongolian leaders. Managed by Zorig Foundation, WLP provides a comprehensive leadership and development program for twenty men and women alumni over an eight month period.

Participants have the opportunity, and receive support in, the designing and implementation of personalized community development projects, addressing issues close to their hearts. WLP is an important part of the Australian Government’s development support to Mongolia, delivered by its Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Program Outcomes

  • Increase the leadership and decision making skills of male and female alumni
  • Support male and female alumni to gain a broader and deeper knowledge of issues that are important to the future of Mongolia
  • Support male and female alumni to improve their opportunities to contribute to and influence the future of Mongolian society
  • Support male and female alumni to establish and develop expanded, and diversified personal and professional networks
  • Support male and female alumni to develop links between Australia and Mongolia
  • Support male and female alumni to gain a deeper understanding of gender equality, particularly as it relates to leadership

Eligibility Criteria

  • Be a graduate of Australian Development Scholarships or Australia Awards (Australia Leadership Awards Scholarships graduates cannot apply because they have benefited from leadership activities as part of their awards)
  • Be currently employed (self-employed alumni and women returning from maternity leave during the program are eligible)
  • Be willing to commit to 8-months of the program
  • Be willing to participate in follow-up monitoring of the program
  • Demonstrate a willingness to strengthen their understanding of gender issues in Mongolia, and commit to supporting both men’s and women’s leadership
  • Demonstrate a supportive workplace and family environment to undertake the program
  • Be seeking to improve their leadership and decision-making skills

WLP will improve women’s equality of opportunity for leadership by involving men and women. Men’s participation will reflect the current alumni ratio: 70% women and 30% men.
