Calling all Executive Level 1 (EL1) women in digital

We invite you to explore the new Coaching for Women in Digital program where you can:

  • reflect on yourself and what makes you ‘you’
  • connect with coaches and peers across government to share experiences
  • grow by dedicating time to developing your strengths through goal setting.

Based on user research, we have redesigned the Coaching for Women in Digital program. We are looking for talented EL1 women or those acting in EL1 roles to participate this year.

Partnering with Accenture, the program focuses on your strengths, increasing your confidence and ability to manage difficult situations, taking ownership of your career through goal setting and accountability. The course will be delivered virtually, so you can be involved no matter your location and circumstances.

How it works

The program runs from November 2020 to August 2021, with seven x 2-hour virtual group coaching sessions and 2 networking sessions. There will be a formal kick off session in December with inspiring speakers sharing their own personal journey.

The program is designed to be flexible. Sessions will be delivered virtually, so you can change timeslots based on your commitments. 

You’ll be assigned to a small group where you’ll get to know your peers and share your experiences in a safe space. In between sessions, you’ll have coaching challenges aligned to your goals and be supported by an online resource and collaboration platform.

At the end of the program, you’ll have the opportunity to stay connected through an Alumni Network to continue to reflect, connect and grow.

You’ll even have the chance to share what you’ve learned by becoming involved in future programs if you wish to.
