Congratulations to WSLHD’s Linda Soars, who has won a scholarship to attend the Australian Graduate School of Management’s (AGSM) Women in Leadership Program at the UNSW Business School.

Linda is the director of Integration Partnerships and Enablers at WSLHD.

She leads a team of 60 staff at the western Sydney Demonstrator site for the NSW Integrated Care program, which is building new models of healthcare for people with long-term health conditions.

The scholarship is part of the Chief Executive Women (CEW) Scholars program, which helps talented Australian women take their careers to the next level.

CEW represents more than 420 of Australia’s most senior women from the corporate, public, academic and not-for-profit sectors

Announcing the winners, Belinda Gibson, chairman of the CEW Scholarships Committee, said the CEW had an extensive program of scholarships for future leaders.

“Our experience is that the leadership courses and study programs quickly provide CEW scholars with greater capability, credibility and confidence,” she said.

The CEW Scholars program supports women at critical junctures in their careers, from their first management roles to top executive positions.

More than 120 women have been awarded scholarships to business schools in Australia and internationally since CEW commenced its executive program for women leaders in 1992.

Linda’s scholarship will commence this month. She said the scholarship would help accelerate her leadership capability.

“Participating in the leadership program will sharpen my strategic mindset and assist me in the development of robust equity and access plans to better tackle the issues in our sector,” she said.
