The Natalie Miller Fellowship (NMF) has today announced that expressions of interest are now open for its new Brilliant Careers Leadership Program encouraging women to develop their leadership skills.
Women from all sections of the screen industry across Australia are encouraged to participate including exhibition, distribution, broadcasting, post-production, production and cultural agencies.
The women chosen will embark on a 12 month Program which will focus on providing practical tools and advice to develop leadership skills, maximise mentoring and networking opportunities, and examine the components and value of creating a personal brand.
This unique Program will commence on Friday 24 February 2017 with a full-day conference at RMIT University in Melbourne.
The conference will be followed by exclusive round table networking dinners, each hosted by a key industry leader. An extensive mentoring initiative will be rolled out thereafter. This is a national program that will be delivered in each state and territory.
To be considered for this year-long program, you must register your interest before Monday 16 January 2017 through the NMF website.
