SHE Leads®

Women deserve the opportunity to become leaders of business. YWCA Adelaide’s SHE Leads® is a seven month program providing practical and reflective leadership development with immediate application in professional and personal life.  

Throughout the program, women can apply the skills and knowledge they learn to the workplace, accelerating career progression by strengthening skills, networks and confidence. Features of the program include: 

  • an assessment of leadership style 
  • one-on-one mentoring for experienced women leaders 
  • practical tools for immediate use 
  • professional development and networking opportunities 
  • high quality support materials 
  • and a graduation event.  

Both participants and experienced facilitators come from diverse industry backgrounds. 

SHE Leads is facilitated by Nicole Swaine, a business leader who has achieved exceptional outcomes training across a variety of sectors and fields. With a background in industrial law in a multinational manufacturer, she uses her local, national and international experience to bring a unique perspective to individual and team development.
