Muslim Women's Leadership Initiative

Leadership Victoria and the Islamic Council of Victoria are proud to announce the Muslim Women’s Leadership Initiative.

The Muslim Women's Leadership Initiative offers a package of programs and activities designed to foster leadership in Muslim women in Victoria through building connections with people currently exercising leadership, and to establish connections and understanding within and between faith, ethnic and other demographic communities in Victoria.

The aim through offering these programs and activities, is to empower Muslim women to develop their capability and confidence, represent those within their faith, and to challenge the stereotypes for Muslim women.  Participants will build networks and connections to drive broader systematic and cultural change, and to contribute to making progress on complex social, economic and environmental issues facing Victoria, Australia and the world.

To launch the initiative, Muslim women are invited to apply for a 2018 Williamson Scholarship.
