Women in Leadership Retreat- Learning Circles for Executive Women
The Australian government is committed to supporting Australian alumni to contribute to development in Laos and aims to ensure women and girls benefit across the broad range of its development cooperation with Laos.
In March 2023, Australia funded the Women in Leadership Retreat – Learning Circles for Executive Women program with 26 Australian Alumni women leaders. Women in Leadership – Learning Circles for Executive Women is an ongoing learning initiative. Over the next 12 months these women will be provided opportunities to learn from their own and others’ experiences, test ideas and share ongoing feedback through peer-to-peer coaching which will help them build the skills and confidence to tackle the challenges for women leaders in Lao PDR.
Alumni Innovation Grants
Launched in May 2020, the Alumni Innovation Grants were a mechanism to support Laos Australia Alumni implement projects which responded to the COVID-19 crisis. Implemented over a three-month period, the successful grantees delivered a diverse range of projects. Whether renovating handwashing stations in schools, providing people living with a disability an alternative income stream, or engaging teenagers to support COVID-19 awareness campaigns, each of these innovative projects has been designed with the Lao community in mind.
