About the Project

The CMTO's women's project grew out of several women's meetings at the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia's national conference. The project aims to support young women in the sector to look at what it takes to become an effective leader either at their station or in the wider sector, perhaps on a national committee.

During the project, a group of young women will manage a small women-related project at their stations, attend monthly webinars and have the opportunity under the guidance of their mentor to learn a whole lot along the way.

This is the first project of its kind in the sector and we were overwhlemed by the response we got asking women to apply. We will be keeping you up to date with how it all goes and hope that at the end of the year, we are well on the way to making this an annual program.
