The Digital Transformation Agency is developing a coaching and networking program for women in the Australian Public Service who work in the digital field.
Aimed at Executive Level 1 employees, the program would help women develop digital leadership skills and create networks to support them in their careers, according to the DTA.
“Our goal is to build the digital capability of the APS to deliver better government services,” it said on Friday.
“This program aims to support women working in digital, increase the number of women in key leadership positions, and to encourage diversity in APS digital roles.”
Participants would receive the guidance, tools and support needed to help them “flourish as leaders in the digital age” and improve their effectiveness at their current level.
They would be exposed to learning opportunities, and collaborative relationships with peers and senior leaders in coaching sessions, the DTA noted.
If desired, the program would also offer information on transitioning back into the workforce, flexible work arrangements, and ways to move into senior roles.
The program would run alongside other learning and development programs hosted by the DTA, including the executive mentoring program for women in digital.
