The first stage of a project on promoting women's leadership capacity in the education sector for Vietnamese alumni in Australia has been completed.
Funded by the fund of Vietnamese alumni in Australia and launched in April, the project aims to improve awareness and leadership capacity of Vietnamese alumni in Australia who now hold managerial roles in educational establishments across Vietnam.
Dr Nguyen Thi Lan Huong from Australia’s RMIT University, head of the project, said at a recent workshop that a total of 14 seminars on different topics were held in the past six months, attracting 28 speakers as well as about 60 weekly group discussions among women under the first stage of the project.
Participants had a chance to listen to success stories by their counterparts as well as difficulties in their career.
Huong added that in the next stage, the project will compile a book on experience and feedback collected during the seminars.
In early 2022, a seminar will also be held with the participation of around 100 guests who are policymakers and leaders in State agencies and educational establishments. It is expected to collect their recommendations regarding education policy for the Vietnamese Government./.
