Supporting Women in Australian Local Government Through the Pandemic


Local Government Professionals Australia is supporting women working in local government across Australia through online peer support, a webinar series, and resource sharing in a newly announced project funded by the Australian Government Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.

The project aims to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 on women working in local government by giving participants:

  • Access to support for career resilience during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, from discussion forums and webinars to scholarship opportunities
  • Platforms to share experience and support (and receive support from) other women in local government on various issues during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Networking opportunities with peers in local government from across the country

This project began in September/October 2020 and runs until mid-2021.
