WEN Professional Development - Apply Now - ONLINE ONLY


From: Friday March 5, 2021, 9:00 am

To: Wednesday March 17, 2021, 11:00 pm

Be heard in meetings and get your message across

The Women in Economics Network is offering this professional development opportunity for WEN members.

Date and Time

Members have the option to apply for one of two sessions:

  • Tuesday 30 March 3:00pm – 5:00pm AEDT; or
  • Wednesday 31 March 3:00pm – 5:00pm AEDT

The sessions will take place over Zoom

The Session 

Meetings are an important, everyday part of working lives, and often high stakes events. Yet the dynamics of meetings can make us feel that we are not getting our message across with the precision and impact we are aiming for. The online meeting environment exacerbates these challenges.  

Be seen, be heard, be effective in business, public sector, and stakeholder meetings, (either face-to-face or online). This session will include tips for face-to-face and online meetings plus a meeting template that will change the way you prepare and look at meetings in the future.

Learn from Catherine McGrath the master in spoken word communications. Catherine is the founder of the WomenSpeaking program and delivered her popular, ‘game-changing’ face-to-face training at the 2019 WEN Retreat and to WEN-ACT chapter in 2020.  You can read more about Catherine here.

How to Apply

Participation is free for current members of the Women in Economics Network. However, to provide a tailored and interactive experience with the workshop facilitator, each session is capped at a maximum of 30 participants. We will aim to provide all interested members the opportunity to participate in this professional development workshop and, if we are over-subscribed, will look for further opportunities in the future.

Applications are open from 9am on 5 March 2021 until midnight on 17 March 2021 (but may close earlier if there is strong demand). We will advise successful applicants as soon as possible after this date.

Important Information

You will need to be logged in to your branch's Economic Society of Australia website to apply. Please see the Society's membership section for information on how to join. There are two questions on the next page about your session preference and availability - these must be answered for your application to be considered.
