Forty-five women graduate with Certificates in Leadership & Management: Levelling the business playing field through gender diversity

8th September, 2022

Working with the Business Coalition for Women (BCFW), PNG’s business sector continues to develop and share good practices relating to recruiting, retaining and promoting women employees by training and promoting female leaders for junior talent through to senior executives.

The combined graduation of Cohorts 15, 16 and 17 today celebrates the achievement of 45 emerging female leaders who successfully completed BCFW’s 6 months Certificate in Leadership & Management Course. The course aims to meet specific PNG industry needs and is designed to develop leadership and management skills of women in the workforce who have the potential to take up supervisory or managerial posts.

Since its inception in 2015, over 300 women from 70 organisations representing a diversity of industries have graduated from the Coalition’s Certificate IV in Leadership & Management, with many of them been promoted as a direct result.

“Since the training, my own growth and leadership journey has been amazing. I was given the tools needed to progress in my career and since the course, I have been promoted twice. The course is invaluable to women and the difference it makes in our careers is tremendous” shared Roselyn Tei, participant from Cohort 11.
