BSI Learning graduated 15 women in 2019 that had started their leadership program last year called “Women in Leadership” that was aligned to the BSB51915 Diploma of Leadership & Management. This program was in partnership with Peter May, the Founding Executive Officer of the CBD Sydney Chamber of Commerce – a Not-For-Profit business focused on promoting membership and supporting SME’s within the largest geographically co-located group of businesses in Australia. They are also a champion for their “CBD Women in Business” forum that encourages and supports women through education and upskilling.
BSI Learning is passionate about empowering women in the workplace – in business, on boards and in executive positions. We encourage employers and businesses to Provide sponsorship and development opportunities for women, Remove the barriers to appointing more women into leadership roles, Focus on the middle talent pipeline – to avoid the Leaky Pipeline, Promote flexible working practices and every manager being accountable for building an inclusive culture.
The Women in Leadership program enabled them to:
- Learn new models and frameworks to tackle everyday management challenges
- Strengthen their ‘hard skills’, like managing poor performance, being more directive and solving problems permanently.
- Lead high performing teams and embed a customer focussed culture
- Promote continuous improvement & innovation in the workplace through creativity
- Be emotionally intelligent and a leader with influence.
“Providing women the support and confidence to take that next step to be successful in their career aspirations and giving them access to mentors is a proven strategy to eliminate gender inequality in executive positions” said Kala Philip, Director of BSI Learning. “We are privileged to have partner organisations that make these projects a success”.
