Bursary Opportunities



Become a supporting partner to attract and nurture a diverse talent pipeline for your organisation
 
Despite ongoing efforts to create a more inclusive public sector, women are still underrepresented in senior leadership positions. Actively address the shrinking pipeline of female talent with our bursary packages. 
 
How can these bursary packages help? 
  • Encourage more women to pursue a career in the public sector – sponsor undergraduates to attend the Summit to give them an insight into what a career in the public sector could look like. 
  • Connect and meet with a different group of undergraduates – Undergraduates will be rotated to a different table each day.  
  • Build informal mentoring relationships with undergraduates through our group discussions and multiple networking breaks – you will have the opportunity to send your team to network with the undergraduates seated at your table. 
  • Promote your organisation’s initiatives to attract, retain and promote female talent to the room – opportunity for a display table in the networking and exhibition area. 
 
If attracting and nurturing a diverse talent pipeline of female leaders is of interest, please contact info@aventedge.com to discuss the various bursary packages available.
