In 2019, the Australian Pipelines and Gas Association (APGA) initiated a game-changing Women’s Leadership Development Program, inspired by success stories from industry around the world.

Building a pipeline of talented women in male-dominated industries is one critical step in developing diverse executive teams capable of the best thinking and highest performance. Research shows that the intelligence of a team is not contingent upon the collective IQ of the team members, but rather upon factors such as the presence of women.

Research such as a recent study by the Australian government also shows that women continue to face many challenges in advancing in the workplace.

The Australian Pipelines and Gas Association, Women’s Leadership Development Program was initiated in 2019 to address a lack of diversity in the Australian pipeline industry. The program was based upon a successful women’s leadership program at the American Gas  association, and provides high value to the members of APGA and to APGA as an association by supporting these purposes: 1) to build a pipeline of talented women in our industry; 2) to provide these women with the skills and capabilities they need to progress in their careers;  and 3) to create a support and mentoring network that fuels their advancement in the workplace and their personal well-being.

To date, seven cohorts of women totaling 175 participants have successful completed the program with outstanding results for both the participants and our  industry

This program is designed to:

  1. Cultivate Talent: Identifying and nurturing bright female minds in our industry.
  2. Empower Careers: Equipping participants with vital skills for career growth.
  3. Build Support Networks: Establishing robust mentorship circles for personal and professional advancement.

Their success stands as proof of our commitment to fostering a more inclusive and dynamic industry landscape.
