Fijian Women's Leadership Forum


Experiential workshop design and delivery focused on
- Communicating above and below the line
- Dealing with sexual discrimination and bias
- Confident communication


Although some progress towards gender equality has occurred across the Pacific, women are still poorly represented in middle and senior management positions within the private sector.Serious Woo worked with the Asian Development Bank to deliver communication training to their Fijian Women's Leadership forum. We ran an experiential workshop focusing on improving the outcomes of above and below the line conversations for Senior Managers. The program aims were to create future women leaders by building their confidence, skills and networks, and providing mentoring, harness corporate support for gender equality, and male champions for the economic empowerment of women, and develop supportive networks within the country and with Australian and New Zealand businessmen and women. Despite technological challenges, we delivered a highly experiential workshop to 40 engaged participants who through games, scenario work and storytelling. We were able to pinpoint particular workplace communication challenges and support the cohort in devising and practicing ways to overcome these barriers. The design took into account both technology and cultural constraints to ensure that the participants felt comfortable, supported and safe to share their experiences.

It was obvious that you put a lot of thought into the presentation and my colleagues and the participants appreciate your efforts. The launch of this new program was very successful and the South Pacific Stock Exchange, the local sponsor, is very happy with this result.
