The WILD Program™

The Women in Leadership Development (WILD) Program is a 6-month course that builds qualifications, skills, confidence and networks to help mid-career women attain senior leadership roles and company directorships.
The WILD Program™ was founded by three under-40, PhD qualified women – Dr Udani Reets, Dr Lauren Giorgio, and Dr Nadine Brew, after their own experiences highlighted the need for an initiative to help develop the next generation of female STEM leaders.

The WILD Program comprises three distinct components:

Part 1: Participants undertake a globally-recognised training course covering areas such as governance, decision making, legal obligations, risk, strategy and finance;

Part 2: Executive leadership retreat – training on STEM specific topics such as negotiation, influence and executive communication, that can greatly assist women in obtaining and performing well in senior leadership roles; and

Part 3: Board mentorship experience – each participant attends board meetings to consolidate their learning and help prepare them for working with boards and senior management.

“The WILD Program came along at the perfect time in my career. It was an intensely rewarding experience that gave me extra confidence in skills I’d already been exercising in my role leading a commercial laboratory. The added bonus has been the creation of a close-knit group of women that are wonderful at sharing their expertise and amazing skill sets”
