In mid 2021, WITH Tas was delighted to receive funding support from Hydro Tasmania and the Tasmanian Government's Women in Leadership Program to facilitate professional, leadership and business development channels for women in tourism and hospitality around Tasmania.
The range of courses and opportunities has been designed to cater for women at various levels in business, particularly targeting small-medium businesses.
To date we've supported three women to complete the I-LEAD Small Business course, awarded Allison Anderson a scholarship to complete the Australian Institute of Company Directors' full Course, sent ten participants to the Tourism Tune-Up online marketing course and another eleven to the two day Business Masterclass which had excellent feedback.
I-LEAD Tourism & Hospitality - scholarships CLOSED
WITH Tas (assisted by the Tasmanian Government's Women in Leadership program) is offering two WITH Tas Members a $470 scholarship on successfully applying to the upcoming I-LEAD Tourism & Hospitality program.
Usually costing $1,470, the August-September program is generously subsidised by Federal Group and the THA by $1,000 leaving $470 payable by participants. WITH's scholarships will enable two women to join the course free of charge.

Tourism Marketing Coaching scholarships - CLOSED
Thanks to the support of Hydro Tasmania, WITH Tas is offering three women in our industry individualised coaching with tourism marketing specialist, David Inches.
This will be provided in three one-hour Zoom sessions, with homework tasks set in between. The time commitment for a positive outcome is a minimum of 6 hours over a manageable period for the participants and David, as agreed individually.
This is open to women in the tourism and hospitality sectors across Tasmania and of maximum benefit to operators/employees in regional areas or niche sectors.
