Women’s Leadership Institute Australia

The Women’s Leadership Institute Australia (WLIA) is a not-for-profit organisation, founded by Carol Schwartz AO. WLIA is the research and advocacy arm of the Trawalla Foundation, focused on finding the best levers for change to achieve equal voice, equal representation and equal recognition for women in Australia.

We catalyse practical initiatives for change, often in collaboration with strategic partners locally and internationally. Example initiatives include Pathways to Politics Program for Women, Women for Media Database, the Panel Pledge and WLIA Fellowships.
