The Clean Energy Council has opened the 2022 round of the Chloe Munro Scholarship for Transformational Leadership.

The Chloe Munro Scholarship for Transformational Leadership is delivered in partnership with Women & Leadership Australia and focuses on supporting women who are emerging leaders in the fields of clean energy, energy management and carbon abatement.

“The inaugural round in 2021 attracted high calibre applicants across a wide variety of roles who have since undertaken or started training with Women & Leadership Australia,” Clean Energy Council CEO Kane Thornton said.

“The benefits in creating greater equity in leadership will go beyond the renewables industry, and diversity in decision-making will result in better outcomes for everyone.”

Skills development, knowledge-sharing and mentorship play an essential part in improving the representation of women in leadership roles.

Recipients from the inaugural round are already applying the newfound knowledge from their studies and have formed strong networks to ultimately help improve gender balance in the clean energy industry.

“For me, the most valuable experience I have gotten out of the course has been having a dedicated time and space with a community of like-minded women to prompt meaningful conversations and reflections on leadership,” said Gina Zheng, a scholarship recipient.

This year’s intake will include three places in the Executive Ready course, a seven-month development program for middle to senior leaders and seven places in the Leading Edge program, a four-month development program for early career leaders and managers.
