Step Up Career Development
WiT’s Step Up Career Development Series empowers you with the skills, knowledge, mindset and confidence you need to step up to the next level in your career.
We welcome women and champions of change at any stage of their career journey regardless of their job title, interests, life stage or location.
Your career development starts with you
We know that your career is more than just a job that ‘pays the bills’ or ‘a means to an end’. That’s why our Step Up career development program series supports you to be curious and open to possibility by feeding your brain with evidence-based insights, tools, strategies and resources to create a sustainable, flexible and meaningful approach to progress or advance your career – regardless of where you are now and the future directions you seek to take as part your career journey.
Be part of an inclusive, inspiring learning community
Collaboration, connection and support are vital for your career development. They are also the special ingredient that makes WiT a warm and welcoming community.
When you join a StepUp event or StepUp program, you’ll be learning alongside fellow STEMM professionals in a safe, supportive learning community.
Whether you are transitioning to leadership, returning to the workforce, embarking on a career change, a student or recent graduate or in an executive leadership role – there’s a WiT Step Up Career Development Program that meets your personal and professional development needs.
Stay tuned as more program streams and events in our Step Up Career Development Series will be released throughout 2022.
“Leadership is not a journey to rise in the ranks. It is a journey to help those around us rise.”
Go on a journey of self-discovery to better understand how you behave, make decisions and relate to others in order to instigate the mindset and behavioural changes needed to develop key leadership skills, positively impact your individual success and create a human-centred culture to empower creativity, innovation and success in your team and organisation.
For just over a $1 per day, your 12-month online subscription to the WiT Step Up in Your Leadership Program allows you to attend live webinars and access a library of online tools, resources, learning circles and on-demand coaching-panels – anytime and anywhere.
Delivered by WiT and Leaders Lounge, our StepUp into Leadership Program is an online, interactive professional development program based on more than 30 years of research by international thought leader, Dr David Keane.
Who is the Step Up into Leadership Program for?
The program is best suited to professionals who are aspiring to move into leadership roles in the near future or have recently moved into a team leader or management position.
The program is also for people who are curious about the mindset and behaviours of effective leaders, and how applying these in your life can positively enhance your impact as a leader to empower increased creativity, innovation, productivity and harmony within your team and organisation.

You’ll laugh, perhaps even cry … but most of all you are sure to be challenged, inspired and entertained as some of Australia’s leading female scientists, technologists, innovators and thought-leaders share their story about the highs and lows of life, their proudest professional achievements, the most important lessons learned as well as what it takes to forge a rewarding career in STEM.
